The Orwell Prize
Gavin Freeguard writes -
Dear Brits at their best,
I hope you’ve had a good start to the New Year. I just wanted to let you know that the entry deadline for the Orwell Prize (for Books, Journalism and Blogs) 2010 is midnight next Wednesday, 20th January, meaning there is less than ONE WEEK left to enter.
If you have any entries, please ensure they have a postmark of 20th January or earlier, or (for the Blog Prize) are submitted online before midnight on Wednesday. Full details can be found here.
Judging by previous entries, the competition is stiff. Jack Night won the blog prize last year.
George Orwell is one of our favourites. Nonfiction writer and novelist (his novels shearing dangerously close to nonfiction) he has always been a witness in our defence. We look forward to hearing about the prize winners.
