The Oxford Collection supports the Mogford Prize each year by offering a complimentary two-night stay with breakfast at one of their two five-star hotels in Oxford, the Old Bank Hotel and the Old Parsonage Hotel.
The Mogford Winner 'Stay' Prize
The luxurious stays are offered to the Mogford Prize judges, award winner, and three runner-ups, and are typically taken up on the night of the annual prize-winning ceremony and party, but can be moved to another date if necessary.
Celebration For The Contestants
Furthermore, each year, The Oxford Collection publishes the winning Mogford Prize short story and distributes a free copy in each of its 78 hotel rooms for visitors to read during their stay or take with them on their travels. This distribution exposes the author's work to a larger audience while also providing a benefit to hotel guests.
