Sponsored by ProWritingAid, The Page Turner Awards aim to help writers get discovered with possible agency signings and representation, mentorship, and potentially taking a book from page to film.
The Page Turner Writing Award offers writers and authors the chance to enter the first 10 pages of a completed, unpublished fiction or non-fiction manuscript, where a group of literary agents will read and judge their work.
With the help of ProWritingAid and The Page Turner Awards, one writer is guaranteed a publishing deal! Plus, there is a chance for other writers to receive a publishing offer through one of the literary agents on the judging panel and the £20K prize fund.
The Page Turner eBook Award is for any published fiction and non-fiction books, which will be read by the judging panel of literary experts and film scouts.
Winners of the eBook Award will receive a chance to secure film rights for their book plus receive valuable publicity campaigns by Palamedes PR in the UK and PR for Writers in the USA. One lucky eBook winner will win an Audiobook Production consisting of a seven-hour book production worth £1500, all-inclusive. Plus two cash prizes will be awarded to the most popular stories voted for by readers.
