Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award

Entries for Amazon’s annual novel award will be open from Jan 24 to Feb 6. You can find all the details here, but here’s the basic info:, along with Penguin Group (USA) and CreateSpace, is pleased to announce the fourth annual Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award, the international competition seeking the next popular novel. The competition will once again award two grand prizes: one for General Fiction and one for Young Adult Fiction. Each winner will receive a publishing contract with Penguin, which includes a $15,000 advance.

Not bad at all, though of course you’d already need a novel finished, or pretty much done, unless you can afford to take a long holiday to prepare. Your manuscript must be between 50,000 and 150,000 words. The official entry guidelines are here.
