The General Editors of Forum are pleased to announce that, in memory of the distinguished musicologist and Forum editor Peter Branscombe, the 2010 Forum Prize is on the subject of music and literature. Articles of up to 6,000 words are invited for the competition: the winning article will be published in the journal and the author will receive the sum of £200.

For the purposes of the Forum Prize, the subject of music and literature is defined in its broadest sense.
Professor Peter Branscombe (1929-2008) is best known for his work on Viennese musical theatre, and on Haydn, Mozart, Schubert and Wagner. He was Professor of Austrian Studies at the University of St Andrews and was for many years a valued contributor to and editor of Forum.
