The fourth annual Bodley Head/FT Essay Prize aims to discover the world’s best young talent in long-form essay writing. We are looking for a dynamic, authoritative and lively essay of no more than 3,500 words on a non-fiction topic of your choice. It can be journalistic, it can be a case study; it can be wide-ranging or minutely focused. In keeping with the ethos of both sponsors, it can address any topic – from finance to history, from current affairs to a scientific discovery. We are not looking for a particular subject; we are simply looking for quality writing.
If you are 35 years old or under and would like your work to be read by Simon Schama (historian and FT contributing editor), Will Hammond (editorial director at Bodley Head), Dan Franklin (digital publisher at Random House), Stuart Williams (publisher at Bodley Head), Caroline Daniel (FT Weekend editor) and Lucy Tuck (editor, FT Life & Arts) then please send us your entry by midnight GMT on November 29 2015.
