Since 2011 the Pete Hay Environmental Politics Prize has been awarded annually to the best APSA conference paper on the topic of Environmental Politics or Policy. The papers are blind reviewed by an independent selection panel, which may be chaired by the previous winner or by Pete Hay himself. The winner is announced during the annual meeting of the Environmental Politics and Policy Standing Group at the APSA conference, where the winner is presented with a cheque for $500. An Honourable Mention may be awarded by the Panel. The Environmental Politics and Policy Group appreciates the time and effort contributed each year by the volunteer Selection Panels.
The prize is named after Dr Pete Hay, a trailblazer in the research and scholarship of environmental politics and policy in Australia and the Founding Convenor of the Ecopolitics Association of Australasia.
