The Paul du Quenoy Prize

ANNOUNCING THE PAUL DU QUENOY PRIZE!

Following a series of highly favorable developments, a committee of private individuals has endowed a new annual award named in honor of the historian, critic, investor, and philanthropist Paul du Quenoy.

The Paul du Quenoy Prize is an annual award founded in 2019 to recognize individuals who have exposed corrupt or absurd practices in academic institutions and media organizations. It is named in honor of Academica Press’s owner, the historian, critic, investor, and philanthropist Paul du Quenoy, whose experiences in and critiques of academia motivated the Prize’s founders to honor and incentivize the exposure of corruption and absurdity in vital areas of public life in which practitioners are rarely held accountable for their actions.

Prizewinners are selected by a committee of private individuals concerned with promoting higher standards of integrity in academia and journalism. The Paul du Quenoy Prize is to be awarded each year around the time of Professor du Quenoy’s birthday (November 15) at a gala held either at the New York Athletic Club in New York City or the Cosmos Club in Washington, DC. Professor du Quenoy will himself present the award, beginning in November 2019.

The annual winner of the Paul du Quenoy Prize will be presented with a cash award and commemorative certificate. Winners with relevant book projects in development will also be offered contracts with Academica Press, a leading independent publisher of general non-fiction based in London and Washington, DC.

Nominations are accepted on a rolling basis and may be deferred if a current year's prizewinner has already been selected.

Sponsorship opportunities are available upon inquiry, and donations to benefit award recipients are welcomed in the spirit of building a fairer and more just knowledge and information sector.

Please direct all inquiries, including sponsorship questions and nominations, to the Chairman of the Paul du Quenoy Prize Committee, Mr. James Abely, Esq., at jamesabely@hotmail.com.
