Essay Competition Announcement

The Board of Editors of this REVIEW herewith announces the inception of an essay competition to be conducted annually as follows:

Prizes and Topics

1.   An annual prize of Three-Hundred Dollars ($300) in memory of Clement Staff, recently deceased former editor of Psychoanalysis, has been established by the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis for the best clinical or theoretical paper in psychoanalysis or psychoanalytical psychology. The first award will be made for 1958-59.

2.   Another prize of Two-Hundred Dollars ($200) has been contributed by an anonymous donor for the best paper illustrating the relations between psychoanalysis and any selected aspect of the social sciences, philosophy, religion, or the arts. The 1958-59 award will be made in honor of Emile Durkheim and George Simmel, outstanding sociologists and philosophers, the centenaries of whose births are being commemorated this year.

The Board reserves the right to withhold making an award in any year if submissions do not seem of requisite calibre. Should the judges conclude that two or more submissions are of equal worth, they may divide the prize money into equal parts and award it jointly to the competitors.


The competition is open to all interested persons, other than members of the Board of this REVIEW, without regard to national origin or profession.

Date of Submission

Essays must be submitted on or before July 15th of any year.
