Nine Dots Prize

November 10, 2016

The Nine Dots Prize is a new prize for creative thinking that tackles contemporary societal issues. Its heartland is the social sciences, but it welcomes entrants from all disciplines and cross-discipline thinking. Entrants are challenged to submit 3,000 word responses to a question set by the 12-strong Board – the inaugural question is ‘Are digital technologies making politics impossible’? The Prize is US$100,000, which will support the winner to write a short book expanding on their ideas to be published by Cambridge University Press in a variety of formats, including open access, meaning the book can be downloaded free of charge. It will be judged anonymously. Further information on the attached and can be found at www.ninedotsprize.org
