We are passionate about critical thinking and want to do all we can to encourage students to engage in critical thinking in all aspects of their study. We invite lecturers to select and submit an essay from one of their students that demonstrates the highest levels of critical thinking. The student must have been engaged in higher education for at least three months on a full or part time basis.

The prize is open to any undergraduate or postgraduate student from the full range of social work and education related disciplines. This year entries will be judged by Effie Maclellan, Emeritus Professor of Education at the University of Strathclyde.

The winner will receive Critical Publishing books to the value of £200 (GBP) and the winning essay will be posted on The Critical Blog. The essay (maximum length 4000 words including references) should not have been published elsewhere. It can be on any theme of relevance to either social work or education. Please include a front sheet stating that the essay is being submitted for the Critical Writing Prize 2016, specifying the level, and include the following:

  • Nominating Lecturer - name, job title, email and institution
  • Student - name, address, date of birth, email and course title.

The deadline for entries is 17.00 GMT 31 January 2016
Please send by email to: julia@criticalpublishing.com
The prizes will be awarded at the beginning of May 2016
