Management Awards open to freelance writers

Freelance business writers are being invited to enter the MCA Management Writing Awards – designed to spotlight excellence in management writing within UK publishing.

The grand first place prize of £500 is on offer to any writer in the industry whose articles have been published after July 15 last year, or will have been by July 14, 2006.

Authors can also try to win the cash prize, following the call for entries for Best Management Book – one of four categories in the competition.

Alongside Best Management Article (entries no longer than 2,000 words) writers can submit pieces for Best Management Interview/Profile and Best New Management writer.

Each writer or author is however restricted to submitting a maximum of three examples of their work, to be in with a chance of winning the £500 prize, and a mention in the November issue of Management Today, the industry bible.

Submissions will be judged by what’s described as a “prestigious panel” of industry experts, who will be evaluating each piece for clarity of language, originality and overall contribution to management thinking.

Alan Russell, president of the Management Consultancies Association (MCA), said: “Since their launch in 2004, the MCA Management Writing Awards have consistently attracted the best business writers and thinkers in British publishing.

“We have no doubts that this year’s entries will include the kinds of thought-provoking and expertly written articles we’ve grown used to receiving.”

Last year’s winners included journalists and authors published by The Financial Times, The Daily Telegraph, ICSA Publishing, FT Prentice Hall and Time Warner Books.

Send in your entries by 1700 on Friday July 14 2006. Full competition terms are avialable at
