The Voiceless Writing Prize

Voiceless, the animal protection institute, has announced the “The Voiceless Writing Prize,” sponsored by Australian Ethical Investment. There is “a total prize pool of well over $20,000 to writers who compellingly address the relationship between humans and animals, and animal sentience.”

The contest is looking for fiction and non-fiction pieces of 5-10,000 words with a focus on animals raised for food or those found in the Australian environment.

The best work will be published by Australia’s largest independent publisher, Allen & Unwin, in 2012.

The winner chosen by the judging panel will receive $15,000, while the public will vote for the People’s Choice to receive $5,000. Voiceless Councillor Deborah Debnam together with Peter Debnam have sponsored the People’s Choice for 2012, 2013, and 2014. All writers published in the collection will receive $500.”

The submission deadline is 16 March 2012.
