annually a prize to be known as the Frank Mullineux Salford Local History

the local history of Salford. The work should be original but its form is not
specified: examples of work which would be considered are a paper, a book, arrangement
of an exhibition, involvement in the restoration of an item of historical
importance, discovery and interpretation of a manuscript, a photographic survey
or other media.

 

3.      The appointed Panel will be known as the
Awards Panel. They will be appointed at the first Forum meeting each year
(starting 2018). There will be no more than 5 members, with the Chair of the
Forum an ex-officio member. It is desired that at least one member of the
Awards Panel shall be from Eccles & District History Society. The
recommendations of the Awards Panel shall be reported to the Salford Local
History Forum whose decision will be final.

Award shall be as decided by the Awards Panel and approved by the Forum. Each
Award will be accompanied by a suitably inscribed certificate.

the Hon. Secretary of the Awards Panel and should include the full name and
address of the candidate and, where applicable the Awards Panel may require a
statement, not exceeding 250 words, to describe a study or project offered and
may invite a candidate to discuss their entry.

 

6.      The Forum reserves the right to waive the
Award in any year if, in the opinion of the Awards Panel, no entry reaches a
sufficiently high standard.

 

7.      Submissions may be made at any time but the
closing date will be 30th June in any year. The Award will be announced at the
first meeting of the Forum following the closing date for submissions unless
decided otherwise. The Award shall be presented at the Salford Local History
