Q: What is the deadline for entering?
A: Deadlines and Pricing

Early Bird Deadline: January 2021 to 28 February 2021 ~ £20
Normal Price: March, April, May ~ £30

Submission Deadlines
Final Deadline: 31 May 2021

Q: What is an early bird deadline?

A: This deadline is for a writer who has their manuscript ready to submit by the date stated for the early bird deadline. You will receive a discounted price to enter within this timeframe.

The Page Turner Awards early bird discount will end on Sunday 28th February.

The early bird discount is to help you enter our awards (with all the fantastic opportunities it offers writers and authors) at a lower cost. You don't have to actually submit your work when you take the early bird price. You still have until the end of May to add your work or to do any editing.

Q: Can I submit after the deadlines?
A: No. We have provided several deadlines to allow for writers who have their manuscript ready to go and for others who are still working on their first 10 pages or who want to take up one of our optional extras and thus need a little extra time to work on their pages before submission.

Q: When is the best time to submit my entry?
A: As soon as you have considered the optional extras, and you know which category you want to enter plus your award submission is ready, you can make your booking and entry submission.
