CLOSING DATE FOR WRITING AWARDS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
Entries for the 20th annual Wills Writing Awards close on Wednesday, February 29.
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 distinguished judges are chaired by Brough Scott for the 10th successive year, offer £3,125 in prizes, an expenses-paid day at Newmarket’s Craven Meeting on Wednesday, April 18, 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.
