As noted at The History of Parliament:

As announced at the recent BSECS conference in Oxford, the winner of the BSECS Digital Prize 2013 is The History of Parliament. In the words of the judges:

“The History of Parliament Online is an immensely valuable new resource for scholars of the long eighteenth century. It makes their comprehensive survey of British political history freely available, and presented in a form that is easily navigable and visually attractive.”

The site can be found via the BSECS Links page or directly here»

The prize is funded by Adam Matthew Digital, and GALE Cengage Learning. It is judged and awarded by BSECS. Nominations close on 13 December in any year.
