The judging panel of the 2016 DLCC competition have now reached their decision.
First prize has been awarded to Carl Hildebrand for his essay ‘Compassion and the Moral Law’.
Joint second prizes have been awarded to Natasha Bailey for her essay ‘The Question of “Mens feeding on Flesh”: Early Modern Vegetarianism in the Writings of Pierre Gassendi, John Wallis, and Edward Tyson’; and to Jordan Miller for his essay ‘Ethical Action and Discourse in Ancient Egypt’.
The standard of submissions was very high and the judges’ decision should not be taken to reflect badly on essays that have not been awarded a prize.
We are very grateful to all who took part in this competition. It is expected that a selection of submissions will be published here in due course.
