The papers shall be submitted to Latvijas Banka by 29 May.

They will be evaluated by a committee of economists set up by Latvijas Banka. The award-winning papers will be published on Latvijas Banka's website www.macroeconomics.lv, and their authors will receive money awards (including EUR 2000 to the Excellence Award-winning paper, EUR 1500 to the first-prize-winning paper, EUR 1250 to the two second-prize-winning papers each and EUR 1000 to the three third-prize-winning papers each; if a paper has several authors, the prize will be equally divided among them).
