We look forward to receiving work which displays a broad array of perspectives.

Essays should not exceed 1,000 words, excluding footnotes and bibliography, and should be submitted as Word documents to Dr Jon Hoover ( by the submission deadline of Wednesday 14 December 2022 at 5 pm, with name and school in the email but not on the essay itself. The prize of £100 in book-tokens will be announced by Wednesday, the 18th of January 2023. The prize is named in memory of a former student, David Garlick, who made a generous bequest to the department, and is intended to promote our discipline of Theology and Religious Studies.
