We are very pleased to announce that this year's Grote Prize has been awarded to Richard Phillips.

Richard is undertaking a PhD on 'The Nature, Derivation and Use of Soft Power in the Ancient Cyclades' at Birkbeck, University of London. The George Grote Prize is offered every year by the Institute of Classical Studies from the fund bequeathed by the late Professor V. L. Ehrenberg. The prize of £3,000 is awarded for an original and hitherto unpublished study on a topic in ancient history and is open to current research students at the University of London.
