We would like to thank our Judgment Panel—panel chair Katheryn Linduff, in particular—for all their hard work in evaluating the submissions. With so many strong translations submitted, selecting the contest finalists was no easy task!

We would also like to congratulate all of the talented scholars that submitted translations for the contest. We are truly grateful for your support and thank you for making the inaugural CCR Translation Contest for Young Scholars a success.

Finally, a special thanks to the Society for East Asian Archaeology and to Rowan Flad, local organizer for the Seventh Worldwide Conference, for their gracious hospitality in allowing us to hold the award ceremony at this year’s SEAA conference.
