Peter Beaconsfield Prize 2005: no awardThe prize has not been awarded.
The following statement is published at the request of the Judges:
The Judges have decided not to award the Peter Beaconsfield Prize this year. As always, the
research described by applicants was uniformly of high quality, but the Judges did not feel
that applicants had adequately followed the criteria laid down by the donors of the Prize.
Since this has been the case for many applications in recent years, the Judges are considering
how to make these criteria better understood and more widely known. An announcement
about this will be made early in the new year through the appropriate channels.
