New Writing Award offers cash prize and publishing potential with Cambridge University Press.

Teaching-English-in-Japan-Education-CUP" For teachers who have thought "I can do better than that!" when using published materials, a new competition from Cambridge University Press and The English-Speaking Union (ESU) offers them the chance to prove it. The "New Writing Award" offers entrants the chance to win a prize of £1,000 and become a published author with Cambridge University Press.

The Cambridge ESU New Writing Award will recognise and reward new, unpublished, writing talent from the world of English language teaching, and entries are welcome from now until 22 July 2011.

The award is open to all English language teachers and writers globally, for unpublished work and creative ideas, which might inspire and engage learners and teachers. The award is set to become an annual event, with a series of topics on language learning planned for future awards.

Martin Mulloy, Director of Charitable Activities at the English-Speaking Union, said: “We’ve worked with Cambridge University Press to develop an award that gives more people the chance to become valued and recognised in the field of ELT publishing. What we are looking for is outstanding examples of new, creative excellence in the English language teaching field.”

Full details are on the English-Speaking Union website.
