Language Teaching, a Cambridge University Press journal, has announced the award of an essay prize which honors one of the founding editors of the journal – the Christopher Brumfit Essay Prize.

This year’s winner will receive a £500 credit to be used to purchase books available in the current Cambridge University Press catalogue. The winning essay – revised where appropriate in line with referees’ comments – will be prioritized for publication in the first available issue of the journal. 

The winner will be nominated for a one-year period as a member of the Language Teaching Editorial Board and designated in all outlets of the journal as the Christopher Brumfit Award Winner member. In addition, an official certificate will be issued to the winner by the journal and Cambridge University Press.
