New For 2024
Embark, with us, on a literary adventure as Page Turner Awards celebrates its fifth year, marking a pivotal milestone in our journey to recognize and celebrate exceptional voices in the global literary landscape. Without further ado, let's dive into the exciting details that await you on this year's writing adventure.
All these new awards and sub-categories are shown in our 2024 Award Categories.
Equality For All Writers
Encouraging Diversity And Equality!
The Page Turner Awards proudly introduces the Equality Awards, a testament to our unwavering commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive literary landscape. This initiative aims to amplify voices from the broadest possible spectrum of experiences, encompassing race, religion, educational backgrounds, different cultural communities, and unique cultural traditions. We've divided the Equality Awards into two distinct categories to accommodate the multifaceted nature of diversity and inclusion, namely the Culture Award and the Phoenix Award.
We are thrilled to launch these new Equality Awards, which align with our ongoing efforts to promote diversity and inclusion within the literary community. Not only that, but we eagerly await submissions that will enrich our understanding of the world through the power of storytelling.
The Culture Award
The Culture Award welcomes submissions that showcase and celebrate the rich tapestry of cultures and communities across the globe. Writers are encouraged to delve into their cultural heritage, traditions, and experiences, illuminating the beauty and diversity of human experiences.
We encourage writers to explore the depths of their cultural heritage, drawing inspiration from the myriad traditions, rituals, and experiences that have shaped their identities.
Your stories have the power to transcend borders, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation for the multitude of traditions that enrich the human journey. Join us in fostering a literary landscape that reflects the myriad colours of cultural expression across the world.
Writers entering The Culture Award will also be asked to give details on their cultural tradition or experience so they can be considered for this award, but essentially it is the quality of writing and storytelling that will determine who the winners will be!
The Phoenix Award
The Phoenix Award stands as a tribute to the unwavering resilience and passion exhibited by writers who have triumphed over personal adversities. Whether navigating the intricacies of writing in a language beyond their native tongue, surmounting physical or mental challenges, confronting traumatic life events, or addressing minority issues, the Phoenix Award celebrates the indomitable spirit of these writers.
Inspired by the mythical Phoenix, this award embodies hope and the promise of brighter tomorrows, rising from the crucible of writers' challenges. The Phoenix Award invites submissions of published, unpublished, or unproduced screenplays, serving as a true stepping stone for unrecognized talents. It offers an opportunity to transcend challenges and carve a meaningful path in the literary world.
Writers entering the Phoenix Award will also be asked to give a personal statement on why they feel they should be considered for this award, but essentially it is the quality of writing and storytelling that will determine who the winners will be!
