Fourth Young Stationers Award open for entries
The fourth annual Young Stationers’ Prize is open for entries. The prize, run by the Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers, the City of London Livery Company for the communications and content industries, sets out to recognise outstanding talent and achievement among those under 40 in a range of qualifying professions and sectors across the industries.
Anyone under the age of 40 can enter. The judges will be looking for demonstrable achievements in the nominees’ careers so far, an outstanding contribution to the sector in which they are working; or success outside their immediate world of work in interesting ways which are relevant to the ethos and trades of the Stationers’ Company.
Nominations or applications from all of the Stationers’ industry sectors are eligible; including but not limited to, printing, packaging, publishing, media, digital and social media, marketing and public relations, journalism, libraries, archives, and copyright.
Past winners of the Young Stationers’ Prize are: Ella Kahn and Bryony Woods, founders of Diamond Kahn & Woods Literary Agency; Angela Clarke, novelist, playwright, and columnist; and Katie Glass, of the Sunday Times.
Dominic Graham, Chairman of the Young Stationers, comments: “this prize is about recognising the achievements and potential of young professionals within our industries, while opening up the benefits of membership of the Company to young people early on in their careers. This is why I’m so keen to see entries from far and wide, enabling us to recognise those doing great things, whether in the media, publishing, printing, or the new digital professions.”
How to enter
To enter, the nominator or applicant should include: a brief CV; a short statement by the nominator (or a personal statement); and at least one additional letter of reference. Candidates or nominators can submit any supporting materials or specimens of work which they believe will strengthen their application.
Applications should be sent by email to [email protected], or by post to Young Stationers’ Prize, c/o Stationers' Hall, Ave Maria Lane, London EC4M 7DD. If sending by post, please also send us an email with your contact details.
The deadline for applications is Thursday, 22 June 2017.
The prize, a trophy kindly donated by The Worshipful Company of Pewterers, will be presented at the Young Stationers’ Annual Dinner in Stationers' Hall, on Monday, 24 July 2017.
Tickets to the Dinner can be purchased online: https://stationers.org/events/event/0/53-events/144-young-stationers-annual-dinner.html
