Anne and Philip Yandle Best Article Award
Each year, the British Columbia Historical Federation offers a certificate and cash prize ($250) to the author of an article published in British Columbia History that best enhances knowledge of the history of British Columbia and provides enjoyable reading. Judging is based upon subject development, writing skill, freshness of material, and its appeal to a general readership interested in all aspects of the history of the province.
Notice of the winning article will be posted in the British Columbia Historical Federation’s publications.
Judges consider all articles published in British Columbia History
that year and issue the Anne and Philip Yandle Best Article Award.
Philip Yandle was the founder, editor, publisher, printer, binder, and distributor of the B.C. Historical News from 1968 to 1977. His wife Anne Yandle was also very active in B.C. Historical News for almost forty years and served as the book reviews editor until the year in which she died. In 2007, the British Columbia Historical Federation renamed its Best Article Award Award in honour of Anne and Philip Yandle.
