Page Turner Awards Opens Its Doors to Literary Excellence for the Fifth Year

The renowned Page Turner Awards, an international writing competition that celebrates exceptional storytelling, proudly announces its opening to submissions for the 2024 season.

Now in its fifth year, Page Turner Awards welcomes British and Scottish authors, novelists, and scriptwriters from all walks of life to showcase their writing talent and gain recognition. From the enchanting, mysterious hills of Scotland to the vibrant heartbeat of London, the United Kingdom has a rich tapestry of stories waiting to be told. The contest beckons British and Scottish writers to unveil their rich tapestry of stories, and breathe life into the tales that echo through its diverse cultural traditions.

The competition encompasses three distinct categories: the Book Award for published works, the Writing Award for unpublished manuscripts, and the Screenplay Award for unproduced scripts.

A distinguished judging panel, comprising different industry experts, including literary agents, publishers, and film producers, looking for scripts to option, will meticulously assess each submission, ensuring that the highest standards of literary excellence are upheld. Once reviewed, they will select the winners, who will receive a range of valuable prizes, including book deals, literary consultations, and more.

In its commitment to promoting diversity and inclusivity, Page Turner Awards is introducing two new Equality Awards: the Culture Award and the Phoenix Award. The Culture Award will recognize a work that celebrates diversity and promotes understanding between different cultures. The Phoenix Award will honour a writer who has overcome adversity and emerged with stronger writing.

Pramudith Rupasinghe, a psychosocial expert and a humanitarian for over 25 years, said, “What an incredible piece of thought! This is a humanitarian dream come true. I am wholeheartedly with you in this endeavour. It fills a significant void I have been noticing in writing contests around the world.

Entering the Page Turner Awards is a great opportunity for writers to get their work noticed and to take their writing careers to the next level, said Paula Sheridan, founder of the Page Turner Awards. The judging panel is always impressed by the high quality of submissions we receive. With our new Equality Awards, the Culture Award and the Phoenix Award, both reflect our commitment to amplifying voices that deserve to be heard. We are excited to see what new and exciting stories this year’s competition will bring.

Writers, irrespective of their background or experience, are encouraged to submit their entries and vie for the chance to be recognized on a global stage. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your work recognized by a prestigious panel of judges.
