The London Library Student Prize 2013 – Winner Announced!

The London Library is delighted to announce the winner of this year’s London Library Student Prize, a writing competition open to all final year undergraduates across the UK.

Many hundreds of students, studying a range of degree subjects at universities across the UK, entered the competition this year. Entrants were asked to consider the theme “Gap years – a new form of colonialism?” and submit an 800 word comment piece exploring the premise.

A distinguished panel of judges – former editor of The Economist and Chairman of The London Library Trustees Bill Emmott, award-winning children’s author Patrick Ness, The Times Books Editor Erica Wagner, and The Times Saturday Review Editor Tom Gatti – were impressed by the originality and fluency of this year’s entries.

Kathryn Nave, a final year Philosophy student at King’s College, London, has been selected as first prize winner.

Runners up are Jacob Burns, an Art History student at Goldsmiths, University of London, and Paul Creeney, who is in his final year of an Ethical World Journalism degree at Staffordshire University.

Kathryn’s winning entry will be published in The Times and The London Library magazine later this year.

Our thanks to the many students who took the time to enter this year’s prize. Some truly outstanding work was submitted and we expect to see many of your names in print in future years.
