Dundee International Book Prize 2014
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.
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 nine writers have launched their careers after winning the Prize since its inception in 2000.
The scribes hoping to follow in their footsteps have until 1.00pm on 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.
