The Robinson College Sykes Prize 2020


The Robinson College Sykes Prize has been launched for 2020. The winning prize is £1000, with runners-up awards of £500 and £250 also available. More information can be found here:

All current students are welcome to enter, hopefully having read some Boccaccio, and certainly having been inspired by the prompt for 2020 ("Plague and Carnival”). The prize is intended to support interconnections between English and other languages (but specifically Italian), as well as (of course!) the creative endeavors of current students.
