Hope Prize

Wednesday, January 31, 2018 (All day)

Judged by Cate Blanchett, Quentin Bryce and Kate Grenville, The Hope Prize encourages writers to explore people's resilience in the face of poverty and disadvantage, and to look beyond common stereotypes to depict the strengths that people and communities show in dealing with hardship. The total prize pool is worth $17,500, while two Women’s Writing Career Development Scholarships of $5000 each will also be awarded. Authors must be Australian residents and entries must be between 2000 and 5000 words.
