AAG Publication Award

Deadline: June 30, yearly

The AAG Publication Award is conferred in recognition of exceptional and outstanding contributions to the discipline by publishers.

One AAG Publication Award may be recommended each year by the AAG Honors Committee, but the award is not necessarily given every year. Note that eligible recipients are publishers, not individual authors. The AAG Media Achievement Award and the AAG Publications Award are selected by the AAG Honors Committee. 

To make a nomination: Nominations are invited from: individual AAG members, specialty groups, affinity groups, departments, and other interested parties.  Please submit a letter nominating a publisher outlining the rationale for the recognition to Patricia Solis at psolis@aag.org with “AAG Publication Award” in the subject line to ensure that the message is properly and swiftly processed.  Digital nominations are preferred, and nomination materials that are emailed as a single attachment as an Adobe Acrobat pdf file are greatly appreciated.  Alternatively, nominations may be faxed to 202-234-2744 or mailed to AAG Honors, Association of American Geographers, 1710 Sixteenth Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20009-3198

Although letters of support are not required for a nomination, nomination dossiers may include co-signatures or up to 5 letters documenting the nominee publisher's contributions to and impact on geography as they relate to the purpose of the award.
