2017 - 2018 Student AIPN Writing Competition  (posted 09/11/2017)

AIPN has sponsored an annual student writing competition since 2001. The competition is open to all full-time seniors in a four-year program and all graduate students enrolled at an accredited university. Essays should be an original work of no more than 4,000 words, EXCLUDING footnotes, on any specific issue of the student's choice which is directly related to international petroleum negotiations, such as matters of contract, law, or policy.

The essays will be reviewed by a committee comprised of educators, lawyers, business managers and international negotiators. Selection of the winning essays is solely at the discretion of the committee. Essays are judged on topical relevance, originality of content, creativity, insight, clarity and support for viewpoints taken. Each student may submit only one entry.

The AIPN reserves the right to award less than two prizes if it determines that the quality of the essays does not warrant two prizes.

The winner of the 2017-2018 award will receive:
* Registration to either the AIPN International Petroleum Summit and its related evening events, to be held in London, UK on April 23 - 25, 2018 or the Model Contracts Workshop (US city and season pending).
