Gower Memorial Creative Arts Prize Winners Announced
Announcing the winning and runner-up entries of the Gower Memorial Creative Arts Prize, set up by the parents of Philippa Gower in memoriam.
The prize runs every three years for graduate and undergraduate students, and judging took place on 15th November this year.
The Gower Memorial Creative Arts Prize is open to undergraduate and postgraduate students of the College. Entires can be submitted in all manner of art forms, be it photography, painting, poetry, drama, artistic performance, prose or anything else that can be thought of.
First place was awarded to Gustas Mockus for his photograph 'Bluebirds of the north on the last day of summer', which can be seen in the header image, and the runner-up was a poem by Joseph Harrison, 'Limoncello Love', which can be found below:
Limoncello love has awakened in the guts
Of sun-drunk youths still green in years
Tired of the taste of luke-cold beers
And longing for a love that cuts
The tongue, whose golden nectar gluts
The blood; sweet ambrosia which clears
The mind, but stings like the half-bitter tears
That form in eyes ecstatically shut
But limoncello’s Summer’s drink,
And as the season starts to fade
Warm-headed softness begins to think
With Autumn’s cool within the veins
And Summer’s fleeting passions sink
And full-thought brandy love remains
