The deadline for entries to the Fifth Annual Student Essay Competition has now passed. Essays have now been assessed and the winning essays form part of Volume 9 of the Norwich Economic Papers.
Rules and conditions:
1. Only students in a degree offered by the School of Economics at the University of East Anglia ('the School' in what follows) are eligible to apply.
2. Joint submissions are possible, but please note that, if students belong to different academic years, the essay will automatically be considered only for the category of the most academically senior student in terms of academic progression in their UEA Economics studies.  In case of a prize being awarded to a jointly produced essay, the prize will be split equally among the winners (in case of fractional amounts, prizes will be rounded up to the nearest penny).
3. Students need to hold copyrights of the essays when submitting them to the School for the competition.
4. On submission of the essay, students agree to surrender to the School the copyrights of the essay, inclusive of the rights to submit the essay to Turnitin inspection and to publish the essay online.
5. The School may publish online in Norwich Economic Papers more essays than those to whom a prize is offered.
6. Each student can submit only one essay.
7. Essays should be in English and should be submitted electronically.
8. The School reserves the right not to award prizes if essays of insufficient quality, and/or inappropriate for online publication on the University website, are submitted.
