The University of Manchester awards an annual prize for research by its students on the University’s history. The research may be presented conventionally as an academic essay or creatively: the 2017 entries including a digital artwork and a history podcast. Last year’s winner was a short story about the University’s medical school by Joshua Allan, while runner up was an ‘Object Biography of the Manchester Museum’ by Samuel Williams. Their winning entries can be read on the University’s website here.
