Dundee International Book Prize 2013
Deadline: Mon 4 Mar 2013
Compete for the £10,000 cash prize and a coveted publishing contract with Cargo Publishing
Some of the world’s best undiscovered novelists will once again attempt to take their place among the literary elite as the UK’s richest prize for unpublished writers opens for entries.
Budding authors are invited to enter their debut novels for the Dundee International Book Prize 2013 and compete for the £10,000 cash prize and a coveted publishing contract with Cargo Publishing.
The competition is a joint venture between the ‘Dundee – One City, Many Discoveries’ campaign and Literary Dundee. It is open to authors from around the world, and eight writers have launched their careers after winning the Prize since its inception in 2000.
The scribes hoping to follow in their footsteps have until Monday, 4th March to send their entry. All entries will be read before a shortlist is drawn up later in the year. The judging panel will then debate the merits of the finalists before the winner is announced at the Dundee Literary Festival in October.
There is no minimum or maximum length to the manuscript but it must be the author’s debut novel. More information about the prize, including a full set of rules and details about how to submit an entry can be found at www.dundeebookprize.com/
