Entries for the 19th annual Wills Writing Awards closed on Monday 28 February.
Entries totalled 118. Of these, 57 were in the under 26 category, 30 were in the under 19 category, and 31 were in the under 15 category. The emphasis towards the under 26 category, which accounted for almost half of all entries, is particularly pleasing.
The expected timetable is as follows:
• By Wednesday 23 March, entrants will learn whether or not they have been shortlisted.
• By Wednesday 30 March, those shortlisted will learn, confidentially, whether or not they are winner or runner-up in their category.
• On Wednesday 13 April, the results will be publicly announced and the awards presented at Newmarket Racecourse.
