Thank you to all the brilliant writers that submitted to the New Voices Award. We are happy to announce the winners of this years competition:
Georgina will receive a £3,500 cash prize, detailed editorial feedback from an Amazon UK editor, and mentoring from an OWN IT! agent, as well as the opportunity to speak with Amazon and OWN IT! about the chance to publish her book.
All runners-up will also receive detailed editorial feedback and mentoring.
OWN IT! has a strong reputation for our commitment to finding and supporting up-and-coming talent.
We care about contributing to creating an ecosystem where universal stories can come from a truly representative community of eclectic voices and diversity is measured through creativity. However, we understand that to do this, we first need a more level playing field so that all writers from all backgrounds feel valued and are given equal opportunities.
The team at Amazon Publishing is passionate about connecting readers with great books. This competition allows the team to work outside typical channels to discover writers who can bring a fresh and distinct perspective to commercial fiction. Amazon Publishing is especially keen for the opportunity to connect with under-represented writers from around the world.
