The 2014 Dundee International Book Prize Open for Entries
In their press release the organisers say:
Submissions are being sought for the Dundee International Book Prize 2014, with a £10,000 cash prize and a coveted publishing contract with Cargo Publishing up for grabs. Budding authors are invited to enter their debut novels for the Prize, which last year attracted more than 350 entries from across the globe. The 2013 winner was Irish writer Nicola White with In the Rosary Garden, a crime thriller inspired by a notorious true case of infanticide in Ireland in the 1980s.
So there you have it – a 1 in 350 chance of winning a publishing contract with Cargo and £10,000.
Unusually, along with unpublished typescripts, the competition is open to “self-published novels” which have been published previously on Kindle or as an e-book.
Check the Full Competition Rules on the website, where you’ll also find the entry form and deadline.
– the deadline in the Competition Rules is 1PM on Monday 3rd March 2014.
