Dundee International Book Prize 2013
Some of the world’s best undiscovered novelists will once again attempt to take their place among the literary elite as the UK’s richest prize for unpublished writers opens for entries. Budding authors are invited to enter their debut novels for the Dundee International Book Prize 2013 and compete for the £10,000 cash prize and a coveted publishing contract with Cargo Publishing. The 2012 Prize attracted a record 475 entries, with New York writer Jacob Appel’s sharply observed post-9/11 satire on patriotism, politics and the media, The Man Who Wouldn’t Stand Up, being named as the winner. The closing date is Monday, 4th March 2013. More details, rules and an entry form can be found at: http://www.dundeebookprize.com
