Good news: The Bracken Bower Prize is now open for submissions.

The annual competition put on by the Financial Times is seeking young writers and researchers to submit a business book proposal. The prize aims to encourage entrants to identify and analyse the business trends of the future with the best proposal being awarded £15,000.

The judges are looking for authors who write with knowledge, creativity, originality and style and whose proposed books promise to break new ground or examine pressing business challenges in original ways.

To enter, you will need to be between 18 and 35 years old before 30th November 2021. You can be a published author, but the proposal itself must be original and must not have been previously submitted to a publisher.

The Bracken Bower Prize will be presented at the Business Book of the Year Award event on 1st December 2021.

Register your interest now to keep informed of how to submit your proposal, key deadlines and updates on the prize. They will also give you access to their booklet on 'How to Write a Winning Proposal' with tips and ideas from previous winners.

The closing date for entries is 11:59pm BST on 30th September 2021.
