IASPM Book Prize 2011 (International call for nominations)

Namens het Internationale IASPM bestuur wil ik jullie wijzen op de call for nominations voor de IASPM Book Prize 2011, zie het bericht hieronder:

Dear IASPM members,

A public award will be given by IASPM for two outstanding *first*
books by a single author on popular music, one in English, the other
in any other language, at the 2011 Grahamstown IASPM conference.

Nominations are invited from IASPM members of books they consider to
be possible contenders for such an award. Authors nominated should
preferably already be members of IASPM, or should become members of
IASPM after being nominated, in order to be eligible. The nominations
should be sent at this stage to the chair of the Book Prize committee
Antti-Ville Kärjä (avkarj@utu.fi) by 11 April 2011 at the latest. When
nominating a book, please provide the following details:
– Author, nationality
– Bibliographical information, including language and page count of
the book nominated
– Confirmation of IASPM membership, including branch

Authors may either self-nominate, or other members may nominate
authors and books they regard worth considering for the award. Please
let me reiterate the criteria for eligibility: a single author, a
member of IASPM, her/his first book (in any language).

Books nominated must have been already published and be on the market
since January 1st 2009, until December 31st 2010, and a copy of the
book must be sent by the publisher or the author to each member of the
judging panels (to be announced later), before April 30th 2011.

With best wishes,

Antti-Ville Kärjä
