Information Literacy Prize

DkIT Library is now inviting third years who have previously submitted work and received feedback to enter Phase 2 of the Information Literacy (IL) Prize 2017. Details of Phase 2 are below.

Information Literacy enables you to find, use and create information in a scholarly context.
The Prize will recognize work that shows transformation as a result of engaging with feedback.
The Prize in 2017 is open to third year students because we hope that what you learn from this experience will help you in your future studies and work.
Work must not exceed 3000 words and must be text only.


Everyone who has previously submitted work and received feedback can now enter the competition. Here's how:

  • Engage with the feedback you received by making changes to your work.
  • Re-submit your amended work on Moodle. Our assessment criteria are available as a PDF at the bottom of this page.
  • Complete the online IL Prize Application Form.

The deadline for phase 2 is midnight on 24 May 2017.


As the competition is primarily concerned with Information Literacy and not with subject-specific content, you may notice a difference between how your work is assessed for the Information Literacy Prize and by your lecturer. We will be offering workshops on how to improve your Information Literacy skills in the run up to the deadline.

A list of previous winners and their work is available online. Check our website for upcoming training.
