Dear PRME UK and Ireland Members

Launch of the 2021 Responsible Business and Management Writing Competition


This year with a new option: to address a Build Back Better call to action


This is the launch of our fifth Responsible Business and Management Writing Competition. As in recent years, our tried and tested categories of entry remain but we are experimenting with a new offer - giving the option to focus entries on a Build Back Better theme.  Once again the competition is brought to you by the PRME Chapter UK & Ireland in collaboration with the organisers at Oxford Brookes Business School.

Our first four years of the competition have led to some inspiring contributions that can be enjoyed here:

Please see full competition details available here 

Recipients of this email are encouraged to forward it to relevant subject, programme, course, unit and module leaders. The first page of the attached leaflet is also designed to function as a stand-alone poster.

The competition in brief:

  1. The competition has three categories - undergraduate essays and reports, postgraduate essays and reports, and an Alternative Media category open to both PG and UG students.

  2. It is open to a wide variety of disciplines - marketing, economics, accounting, leadership and management etc.

  3. It is designed to accept work already written and submitted by students at their home institution i.e. it does not require specially written essays or other artefacts. But students can also choose to address our optional theme of Build Back Better.

  4. There are three prizes in every category, jointly sponsored by the  Chapter and Oxford Brookes University: first prize (£500), second prize (£250) and third prize (£100).

  5. You can use the competition to create local publicity for PRME and your related initiatives.

  6. Entrants can be from PRME and non PRME signatory business schools - this competition is part of our outreach to the wider sector.


Please encourage your students and colleagues to participate. If you have any questions, just get in touch with Oxford Brookes via the details on the attached flyer or directly on

The deadline for submissions is  28th February 2021.


Warm Regards,

Dr Jonathan Louw
