Professor Raghbir Singh oversaw the adjudication and administration of juries for the 2017 Prize. Professor Raghbir ensured there was just and fair proceedings in relation to the adjudication.
The process was designed initially by Professor Anne Murphy, with advice and guidance from the Prize Advisory Committee, who designed the process, adjudication and administration of the Prize in its initial form. Professor Murphy’s scholarly experience with Punjabi culture and literature, and with the adjudication and management of literary and book prizes (both in English and Punjabi), coupled with 10 years of experience working with museums and other non-profit organizations on related projects, helped devise a process that would foster engaged and ethical adjudication.
