Established in 1997, the Longman-History Today awards are made jointly by the publishers Longman and History Today magazine to foster a wider understanding of, and enthusiasm for, history. There are two main awards: Book of the Year, awarded for an author's first or second book, and the Historical Picture Researcher of the Year. There is also an undergraduate dissertation prize and the Trustees' Award, which recognises a person or organisation that has made a major contribution to history.
