Truckell Prize: deadline 1st October


In 2009 the Dumfriesshire and Galloway Natural History and Antiquarian Society established The Truckell Prize in memory of the late AE Truckell and his outstanding contribution to local studies in Dumfries and Galloway. The prize was open to undergraduate or postgraduate students from the Crichton Campus, Dumfries for a research paper on a human or natural history topic relating to the geographical area of the three former counties of Dumfriesshire, Kirkcudbrightshire and Wigtownshire. In its first six years the prize was awarded on three occasions.

The Society has now revised its terms and conditions so that it is now open to all-comers apart from previous winners. The prize of £500 will be awarded annually, with a closing date for submissions of 1 October each year.

Full details regarding terms and conditions and about how to submit entries are available from:

Chair of the Society’s Research Sub-committee, Dr David Devereux, 6 Woodlands Avenue, Kirkcudbright, DG6 4BP.
