The Sporting Inequities award is a new prize to reward outstanding work in one of the following under-researched areas:

      • Sport and Black/ethnic minority individuals/communities
      • Sport and LGBTQ+ individuals/communities
      • Women and sport
      • Disability and sport

Papers should be largely focused on the British context. Academics at all career stages are encouraged to apply. Postgraduates are eligible, but may not apply if they are also under consideration for the Richard Cox Postgraduate Prize.

The winning paper will be awarded £200, and the researcher will be invited to submit their paper to the Society’s peer-reviewed journal Sport in History.

The deadline for submissions is 15 August 2022.
