At a guess, it might have been an entry for the British School in Rome (http://www.bsr.ac.uk/ENG/BSR_Home01.htm). I remember visiting an architect friend who had a Rome fellowship for a year (he's now one of the most successful architects in London), and the school is a wonderful, odd relic of a era when time in Rome was a fundamental requirement for artists and architects.

I don't know if the British fellowships were ever called the Rome Prize or (even more doubtful) Prix de Rome, but I wouldn't be surprised if they informally acquired that tag.

The URL in that previous comment should end at "htm", with no closing bracket and period.
