Oxford University Gazette, 14 December 2006: University Agenda

CONGREGATION 16 January 2 p.m.

¶ Members of Congregation are reminded that written notice of any intention to vote against, or any proposed amendment to, the legislative proposal below, signed in each case by at least two members of Congregation, must be given to the Registrar by noon on Monday, 8 January (see the note on the conduct of business in Congregation at the end of 'University Agenda').

Voting on a Legislative Proposal: Egerton Coghill Landscape Prize

Explanatory note

The following Legislative Proposal submitted by Council under Part 2 of Congregation Regulations 2 of 2002 (Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4633, 9 October 2002, Vol. 133, p. 161, as amended on 12 October 2004, Gazette, Vol. 135, p. 214), which is promoted on the recommendation of the Humanities Board, makes changes to the existing legislation governing the Egerton Coghill Landscape Prize. In order to encourage a broader field of applications it is proposed to remove the requirements that only paintings 'in oils' and 'of some 0.4 square metres in area' shall be admissible as entries. Entries must, however, continue to be 'small', as determined by the prize judges, in recognition of the wishes of the donor and his family.

WHEREAS it is expedient to change the existing provisions governing the Egerton Coghill Landscape Prize, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

In Part 14 of the Schedule to the Statutes (as published on 9 October 2002 in Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4633, pp. 139–140), delete existing section 14.4.(1) and substitute:

'14.4. (1) Only small landscape paintings painted during the preceding twelve months shall be admissible as entries.'
