GAP Essay Award 2022

Each year, the German Society for Analytic Philosophy (GAP) and the philosophical journal
Grazer Philosophische Studien award the GAP Essay Award to undergraduate and graduate

You can’t argue about taste, can you?

The essay must address the question, but it need not have that title. Up to three awards of
500 € will be awarded. The winning essays will be published in Grazer Philosophische Studien.
Thus, they have to be suitable for publication in a philosophical journal.

Eligible for the GAP Essay Award is anyone who is either enrolled in a German-speaking
university at the end of the deadline on 30 November 2022, or who has completed a
Bachelor's or Master's degree at a German-speaking university in the year before the deadl-
ine. Excluded from participation is anyone who has been in a philosophical doctoral program
for more than one year or who has already completed a philosophical doctorate at the end of
the deadline.
