Entries for the 21st annual Wills Writing Awards close on 28 February.
The Awards are for creative writing around a horseracing theme by young people. There are prizes for the winner and runner-up in three categories – under 26s/19s/15s.
The Awards, whose judges are chaired by Brough Scott for the 11th successive year, offer £3,125 in prizes, an expenses-paid day at Newmarket’s Craven Meeting on Wednesday 17 April, and the opportunity for the winners to be published.
Employees of the national and racing press, in a journalistic capacity, are ineligible, meaning that the under 26 award represents an attractive opportunity for a young regional or student journalist. No previous experience of published or competitive writing is required.
