The IPEd Student Prize acknowledges excellent work by a student of editing. The prize is open to any tertiary-level student enrolled in an editing or publishing program at a New Zealand or Australian tertiary institution. Entry is open for work completed as part of the student’s course that demonstrates editing skills or reflects issues relevant to the editing profession.

The winner receives $500 in cash, an IPEd membership, a one year subscription to both the Macquarie Dictionary and the Australian Manual of Style, and a copy of The Editor’s Companion by Janet Mackenzie.

The 2023 Student Prize was awarded to Lauren Connell, a student in the Master of Writing and Publishing program at RMIT University, for her essay “Can Australia’s trade publishing industry go green?

The annual IPEd Student Prize is judged by a panel of experienced reviewers, coordinated by the Standing Committee on Awards and Prizes. The committee will call for expressions of interest from potential judges in early October 2023.
