The FT/OppenheimerFunds Emerging Voices awards will recognise the most inventive and creative fiction writers, film-makers and artists from emerging market countries in Africa and the Middle East, Asia-Pacific and Latin America or the Caribbean.
Open to nationals or passport holders of these countries, panels of distinguished judges will give awards to the best creators of published fiction in English or English translation in Africa, the top film-makers in Asia-Pacific and the most distinguished artists in a variety of media in Latin America or the Caribbean.
The PEN International/New Voices Award encourages new writing in the countries in which we operate, and provides a much needed space for young and unpublished writers to promote their work. The award actively encourages entries from diverse linguistic regions and communities.
The award is open to unpublished writers aged 18-30. The young writers must be nominated by their local PEN Centre: PEN International cannot receive entries directly from candidates.
Submit your entries by 30 March 2015
