St Edmund Hall


Philip Geddes Memorial Prizes 2003

The Philip Geddes Memorial Prizes are intended to encourage undergraduates who want to pursue a career in journalism by providing them with funds to be used in furtherance of their journalistic education and training. The Prizes were founded in memory of Philip Geddes, journalist and former member of St Edmund Hall, who was killed in the IRA bombing at Harrods in 1983.

In 2003, St Edmund Hall intends to award a prize to the value of £1,000.

Entries are therefore invited from members of the University who will, at the end of Trinity Term 2003, have completed their second year, and who have involved themselves in journalism (including radio and television) in the University and elsewhere. Candidates are required to submit four copies of the following: (i) examples of journalistic work completed during their period at the University, and (ii) a description of the journalistic project on which the candidate proposes to spend the award. The Prize will be judged by two practising journalists, one fellow of St Edmund Hall and one other senior member of the University.

Student journalists who specialise in sports writing will also be able to compete for the Clive Taylor Prize for Sports Writing. Thanks to a generous benefaction, a £1,000 special award in memory of the distinguished cricket writer Clive Taylor will be available.

Candidates should ask their tutor to write separately to Professor Richard Crampton at St Edmund Hall, certifying that the candidate's journalism has not interfered with academic work. They should also note that awards are made on condition that the successful candidates later submit a report (approximately 3,000 words), detailing the use to which their prize-money has been put.

Entries should reach Professor Richard Crampton at St Edmund Hall by midday on Wednesday of fourth week of Hilary Term. Envelopes should be clearly marked `The Philip Geddes Awards'. Sports entries should also include the word `Sport'.
