The Board of CHAE, following a proposal by the family of the late deceased associate professor of Byzantine archeology at the University of Athens Titos Papamastorakis (1961-2010) established in 2013 a prize of the same name in his memory. The Titos Papamastorakis Prize is awarded to an unpublished doctoral dissertation approved by Greek universities, on a topic related to the interests of the late Byzantine scholar (art and ideology, painting, craftsmanship, from the period from the end of Constantinople).
The prize is awarded every other year and is accompanied by the amount of 2,000 euros. It is open to candidates regardless of age and nationality, whose submitted works are evaluated by a committee of anonymous readers designated by the Administrative Board of the Christian Archaeological Society. The prize is awarded during the Symposium on the year following its announcement. The call for submissions with the terms for participation is advertised on the website of the Society and forwarded to its members and to the scholarly community.
To date, the Titos Papamastorakis prize has been awarded twice:
