This year for the first time an award was made to recognise the tireless devotion that David Witt has given to the Department through the medium of project work, which can count towards the degree classification of those involved.
Essentially it relied on the judgement of the Finals Examiners and was financed by a fund at the disposal of the Department, the initiative coming from Raoul Franklin, a member of the Department from 1963 to 1978, and colleague of David's for many years.
The Prize was to go to the most innovative or imaginative of all of the projects undertaken and submitted for judgement, and an appropriate mechanism was put in place.
