Bastiat Prize

Bastiat Prize 2007: Submission Open

IPN's Bastiat Prize for Journalism was inspired by the 19th-century French philosopher and journalist Frédéric Bastiat. The prize was developed to encourage and reward writers whose published works eloquently and wittily elucidate the institutions of a free society: limited government, rule of law brokered by an independent judiciary, protection of private property, free markets, free speech, and sound science. The prize (a total of USD $15,000) will be split among First, Second and Third placed winners.

Judges this year will include: former British Chancellor of the Exchequer, Lord Lawson of Blaby and 2002 Nobel Laureate, Professor Vernon Smith.
