The Association for Women in Slavic Studies invites nominations for the 2013 Competition for the Heldt Prizes, awarded for works of scholarship. To be eligible for nomination, all books and articles for the first three prize categories must be published between 15 April 2012 and 15 April 2013. The publication dates for the translation prize, which is offered every other year, are 15 April 2011 to 15 April 2013. Nominations for the 2013 prizes will be accepted for the following categories:

1. Best book in Slavic/Eastern European/Eurasian women’s studies;
2. Best article in Slavic/Eastern European/Eurasian women’s studies;
3. Best book by a woman in any area of Slavic/East European/Eurasian studies.
4. Best translation in Slavic/Eastern European/Eurasian women’s studies.

One may nominate individual books for more than one category, and more than one item for each category. Articles included in collections as well as journals are eligible for the “best article” prize, but they must be nominated individually. The prizes will be awarded at the AWSS meeting at the ASEEES National Convention in Boston, MA, in November, 2013.
