Dear Friends and Supporters of the PRME Chapter UK and Ireland,


Launch of our 2022-23 Responsible Business and Management Student Writing Competition

We are delighted to announce the launch of our seventh Student Writing Competition. Our tried and tested Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Alternative Media categories remain in place.  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 six years of the competition have generated many compelling contributions and some winning entries from last year can be found here.

This seventh competition takes place as our 2023 Chapter Tenth Anniversary celebrations begin to take off. There could be no better way to celebrate student engagement with the mission of PRME in this anniversary year than to promote a bumper crop of entries this time around!


Full details (a 3 page leaflet) are available HERE. The first page of the leaflet is also designed to function as a stand-alone poster.

Please forward this announcement to relevant subject, programme, course, unit and module leaders as well as interested students.

The competition in brief:

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

  2. The competition is open to a wide variety of disciplines - marketing, economics, accounting, leadership and management etc. In all cases there needs to be a clear link to the Sustainable Development Goals and/or responsible business, management and leadership themes.

  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 develop work on a topic of their choice related to the SDGs/responsible business and management.

  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). Finalists in all categories also receive a certificate of achievemnt.

  5. You can use the competition to generate colleague as well as student engagement with PRME. Colleagues regularly tell us that having students as Winners or Finalists provides a great profile and morale boost within their institutions

  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 2023.


Warm Regards

Jonathan Louw
