The Penguin Random House (PRH) Literary Prize, launched in 2017, was established to find, nurture and develop new Australian authors of literary fiction. PRH is already home to many admired and awarded authors, and this prize offers aspiring and diverse writers from across the nation a chance to connect with people who can celebrate their work.
Since its launch the Literary Prize has received an incredible number of submissions: approximately 400 each year, exploring an array of themes and genres.
Submissions are open to all Australian residents aged 18 and above. Submissions will close at 11:59pm AEDT on Tuesday 15 December 2020.
The Prize value is $20,000 and the opportunity to publish with PRH Australia. A shortlist will be revealed on 12 March 2021, with the winner announced on 17 June 2021.
