Longman–History Today Awards

The Longman–History Today Awards is the name of an annual awards ceremony, run by Longman and History Today magazine, in which prizes are presented in various categories "to promote the study, publication and accessibility of history to a wide audience."

The award categories are:

  • The Trustees Award: given to a person or organisation that has done most to promote history over the last year or years.
  • Book of the Year: given for an author’s first or second book.
  • Picture Researcher of the Year: given to a researcher who has done outstanding work to enhance a text with the creative, imaginative and wide-ranging selection of appropriate images.
  • Undergraduate Dissertation of the Year: for the best dissertation presented by a final-year undergraduate at a British university.
