The University of California Press in association with the Center for a Public Anthropology is sponsoring an international competition that awards a formal, publishing contract for the best book proposal submitted — independent of whether the author has completed (or even started) the proposed manuscript.

The Series is open to working with authors as they wind their way toward completion. The winner will receive, in addition to a formal book contract from the University of California Press, a five thousand dollar advance.
The California Series in Public Anthropology encourages professional scholars from a wide range of professions and fields to address important public issues in publicly meaningful ways.
