Kelpies Prize 2018: Now open
Deadline: Wed 28 Feb 2018
From Dumfries to Dundee, Kirkwall to Kelso and everywhere in between, we are looking for Scottish children's novels with a difference.

Fantastic fantasies, sensational sci-fi, awesome adventures and satisfying slices of life – the Kelpies range of Scottish children's novels has them all. But we are still looking for more. Do you have a cracking story, with strong characters and believable dialogue which children won't be able to put down? Then we want to read it!

This year, we're looking for entries to the Kelpies Prize in two categories to reflect our expanding audience:

Kelpies (8-11 year olds)
KelpiesEdge (12-15 year olds)

The Kelpies Prize was set up in 2004 to encourage and reward new Scottish writing for children. Winning authors receive a £2,000 cash prize and have their novel published in the Kelpies range. For more detail, please read the Guidelines below.

The closing date for entries for the 2017 Prize is 28 February 2018.
