A RECORD number of students from The University of Chichester have been recognised at a top writing competition.

Each year The Bridport Prize receives more than 10,000 entries.

This year it awarded one of its top awards to current undergraduate Emma-Jane Hughes, who won a highly commended prize in the poetry section for her poem ‘My Camel’.

Former MA student Jacky Taylor won third prize in the flash fiction section for her piece ‘Number 43’.

Jacky, who is an arts education specialist, was awarded the prize from a field of 2,500 entries.

Five other Chichester students were shortlisted in this year’s competition.
