The BCMH’s ‘Three Minute Military Thesis’ Competition is back! Thanks to generous sponsorship from the National Army Museum Development Trust, the prize fund has doubled. With a first prize of £200, runner’s up prize of £100, and a new ‘People’s Choice’ award of £100 this competition offers PhD students focusing on any element of conflict, the opportunity to showcase your research, and engage the public with your findings.
Due to Covid, this year’s competition is digital. Applicants will provide a video of their research topic and findings, demonstrating their passion, and ability to explain the impact of their findings in a way that is accessible to experts, students, and the public.
The speakers will just be taking questions from the audience, so they won’t present live. The entries can be viewed at Three Minute Military Thesis | Historygoeson where people can also find details on how to vote; a public vote will decide the ‘People’s Choice’, while an expert panel will select First and Second Place.
At a special online award event, also on 24th March, applicants will participate in a roundtable discussion and take questions from members of the public.

I am glad I was not on the judging panel - I felt all eight papers were worthy winners. AG
