Would you like the chance to win £500? We have a competition you might be interested in! Take a look at our James David Forbes Collecting Prize. Only open to University of St Andrews students.

If you collect books, printed ephemera, manuscripts or photographs, tell us about your collection for the chance to win. Previous winners have included collections about found photographs from Australia, twentieth-century pageant items, “daily literature” of the Dutch Golden Age, and Children’s Literature c. 1880 – 1945. 

Read about the rules of the competition and take a look at the application form.
