Article of the Year Award

Article Of the Year Award

The South Australian Genealogy & Heraldry Society Inc. has created The South Australian Genealogist: Article of the Year Award. An annual award presented to the author or authors, of the most outstanding article(s) published in the Society journal within a calendar year.

This Society initiative is to encourage family history writing on a smaller scale than a published book, and the submission of quality articles to the Society journal with the possibility of future publication on the Society website.

The award will be judged by members of the Society Family History Writers Group and feedback will be provided to each entrant at the end of the judging process.

A framed certificate will be presented to the award winner or winners at the Family History Book Award luncheon of the following year.
