 The Seatonian Prize 

The Examiners of the Seatonian Prize give notice that the subject for 2021-22, as published in the Reporter, is:

  • “She shall be brought unto the King in raiment of needlework”

    The Seatonian Prize is for a poem on a subject conducive to the honour of the Supreme Being and the recommendation of virtue. The Prize is open for competition among all members of the Senate, and all persons who are possessors of the status of Masters of Arts, or qualified for membership of the Senate at the next promulgation of the Register of the Senate.

    Each candidate must send three copies of the exercise, together with a statement that it is his or her own original work, to the Administrative Officer of the Faculty, so as to reach him not later than 30 September annually. The exercises must be printed or typewritten. Each copy must bear a motto but not the candidate’s name and must be accompanied by a sealed envelope bearing the same motto outside and containing the name of the candidate, his or her College, and home address if not still at College.

    The prize-money, about £3,000, will not be paid until the successful candidate has deposited a printed or typewritten copy of the poem in the University Library.
