The Peggy Chapman-Andrews First Novel Award

  • Your novel doesn’t have to be finished. We initially need only 5,000 to 8,000 words and a 300 word synopsis. If you’re long listed we’ll ask for a total of 15,000 words, including your original word count. Shortlisted? Then we need a total 30,000 words, again including your original entry and long listed word count. It all adds up to an incredible opportunity.

First prize: £1,500

  • An extract of your novel will be published in our anthology and you will also receive advice from our partners including mentoring by The Literary Consultancy, consultation with London literary agent A.M. Heath and publisher Headline. Appearing in our anthology means you are published and opens up further opportunities. You will also have the chance to be part of our awards celebrations. Finally, we will continue to champion you as part of the Bridport Prize family.

Runner up: £750

  • Your novel extract will be in our anthology so you are published, which opens up further opportunities. Your manuscript will be assessed by The Literary Consultancy with invaluable editorial advice. It’s the start of a whole new beginning.

£150 x 3 awards

  • You also receive a 15,000 word appraisal from The Literary Consultancy. Your novel extract is featured in our anthology which means you are published and allows you to enter other competitions not open to the public.
