The Dean’s Prize for the Arts and Humanities
The Dean’s Prize for the Arts and Humanities is an annual competition open to undergraduate year 2 students (registered in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities).
Aiming to showcase the creative work of the arts and humanities students, it’s a great way to demonstrate your skills.
The winner of the prize receives £500 and the accolade of winning the prize. There are three runners-up prizes on offer.
This year's question is:
TRUTH OR TRUST :
IS THE REAL PROBLEM NOT SO MUCH THAT WE LIVE IN POST-TRUTH SOCIETIES, BUT POST-TRUST ONES?
The humanities analyse the multiple ways in which humans shape their world, and they are inspired by the possibility of making that world a richer, better, more interesting and meaningful one. Beneath simple labels like post-truth, alternative facts and fake news is a complex set of issues questioning our values. For this year's Dean's Prize you are invited to explore post-truth, post-trust societies.
Entries can be submitted in any format. Some examples may include a short video, photograph, poem, essay or piece of art work (this list is by no means exhaustive). View 2015/2016 winner and runners-up entries.
The competition is all about creativity and imagination so feel free to explore the question area in the way you see fit.
Deadline: 12 noon Friday 16 March 2018
Winners will be announced in May 2018 and will be presented with their prizes at an awards ceremony in September 2018 (date TBC).
