The Master, Professor Chris Dobson

Up to three prizes of £300 are awarded for writings, on any subject, in prose or in verse, published or unpublished.

The award is open to all members of the College who are Undergraduates (including affiliated students) when the prizes are advertised, usually in November.

Candidates may submit either writings on a subject of their choice, or works of scholarship or the results of any research they have undertaken. Writings, which should not exceed 5,000 words in length, must be accompanied by a declaration that the submission is the candidate's own original and unaided work, and that it has not been submitted in any University examination nor for any University Prize or other College Prize.

The deadline for submissions is usually in April.

Once the prize is announced students can find more information about how to apply in their announcements, after logging in to the website.
