The IAMHIST-MICHAEL NELSON PRIZE FOR A WORK IN MEDIA AND HISTORY is a biennial prize awarded for the book, radio or television program or series, film, DVD, CD-ROM, or URL making the best contribution on the subject of media and history, which has been published or shown in the preceding two years.
The prize is dedicated to Michael Nelson, whose passion for media and journalism inspired IAMHIST throughout the years. For more information on Michael Nelson, please consult: www.michaelnelsonbooks.com

The winners will be announced on the website shortly. Continue reading
