General Regulations

The Prizes are open to all members of the University who on the closing date for entries will not have exceeded four years from their matriculation (except that the Newdigate Prize is open only to undergraduates).

In every case the time is computed by calendar, not academical, years, and strictly from the day of matriculation to the day of entry without reference to any intervening circumstances whatever.

No person who has already obtained a prize will be entitled to a second prize of the same description.

No entry can be accepted which does not comply with the following special regulations:

1. Three typed copies of the exercise must be sent, and the words `Three typed copies enclosed' must appear on the envelope together with the name of the prize concerned.

2. Each composition must be distinguished by a motto, and authors are required to conceal their names.

3. In a separate sealed envelope, with the same motto inscribed upon it, the name, college, and date of matriculation must be enclosed.

Manuscript corrections, if any such are necessary, should not be in the candidate's handwriting.
