Press Release: Prizes and Awards
The Tibor Jones Pageturner Prize - Winner To Be Announced At 5pm Today

Posted at 9:52AM Monday 11 Apr 2011

The Tibor Jones Pageturner Prize was launched in November 2010 with the primary aim of discovering and promoting new and exciting voices in fiction. The fiction can embrace any genre, but the writing must be distinctive, absorbing and, above all, pageturning. The writer must be unpublished and unagented. The winner will receive £1000 and representation by Tibor Jones & Associates.

We publicised the prize largely through word of mouth and a social marketing campaign via Twitter and had an amazing response with nearly 400 entries ranging from young adult to science fiction, literary fiction to romance. After much sifting we drew up an eclectic long-list, which - after much discussion - the judges whittled down to a short-list of six. 

The prize is judged by Jasper Sutcliffe of Foyles, Marcus Gipps of Orion and David Foy of Bloomsbury, as well as Kevin Conroy Scott and Sophie Lambert of Tibor Jones & Associates.

The winner will be announced at 5pm today at the PEN / Foyles Literary Cafe in the main exhibition space of the London Book Fair.

Please come and help us celebrate the inaugural Tibor Jones Pageturner Prize!
