LDN Bulletin Best Essay Award

The Liberal Democracy Nepal Bulletin (LDNB) is committed to publishing high quality essays and commentaries. In order to encourage excellence and a greater number of submissions, LDNB has created the "LDN Bulletin Best Essay Award". Each year, a committee of scholars will review all submissions for the previous year and choose the best article or essay. Generally, the selection process will take place in early December, and the recipient of the award will be notified by the end of the year. Only longer pieces (articles and essays) will be considered for this award.
