We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Oregon | Places Prize.

The biennial prize is a new collaboration between the College of Design at the University of Oregon and Places Journal. The Oregon | Places Prize has been established to support ambitious public scholarship on the large theme of power and place — on the practices, institutions, spaces, and aesthetics that encourage or obstruct the achievement of urban equity and environmental justice, and on the relationship of the design disciplines to larger structures of power.

The prize is open to mid-career or senior scholars with a keen understanding of public scholarship. The winner will receive an honorarium of $7,500 to produce a major work of public scholarship for publication in Places Journal and for presentation in a public lecture at the College of Design in Eugene, Oregon.

Applications will be accepted until September 16, and the winner will be announced in the fall.
