The Kim Scott Walwyn Prize: rewarding talented women in publishing
The Kim Scott Walwyn Prize has recently opened for submissions. The Prize was relaunched this month in partnership with the Society of Young Publishers (SYP) and the Publishing Training Centre (PTC) with a new focus on emerging, rather than established, talent amongst women working in publishing. It aims to recognise and celebrate the achievements and promise of women early in their careers and, as such, is only open to women who have worked in publishing for fewer than seven years. The winner will receive £1000 sponsored by the SYP and a one-day training course of their choice, courtesy of the PTC.
This Prize may be of interest to any recent graduates who have gone on to demonstrate promise and excellence in their careers. All information related to the Prize, rules for entry, and how to apply can be found on the website (http://www.booktrust.org.uk/show/feature/Home/Kim-Scott-Walwyn-Prize), and any members of the SYP will also have recently received a Press Installment about the Prize.
The Prize is an incredible chance for a woman early in her publishing career to receive not only the recognition of a distinguished committee, but a substantial monetary gift and a training opportunity.
