The Digby Stuart Research Centre for Catholic Studies at Roehampton is co-sponsoring an essay writing competition with the Tablet.
Entrants are invited to write a 1,500 word essay, of a style and standard suitable for publication in the Tablet, on the topic, Catholic Social Teaching for the Twenty First Century. This means writing in the style of serious journalism for an informed readership, without footnotes or bibliographies.
First prize: £500 plus a one-year subscription to the Tablet.
Five runners-up will also receive a one-year subscription to the Tablet.
The winning essay will be considered for publication in the Tablet, and a selection of the best essays will be published on the Tablet website.
The competition is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate university students.
Essays must be in English and typed in double-line spacing (handwritten essays will not be considered.)
Each essay should be accompanied by a completed entry form – see link below.
Entrants may submit one essay per person.
Entries should be submitted by post or as e-mail attachments to the address below, to arrive not later than Monday 10 January, 2011.
Competition results will be published in the Tablet and on the Tablet website by the end of March 2011.
