Calling all writerly types who love the arts, The Observer/Anthony Burgess Prize for Arts Journalism has just opened. The prize was set up last year to encourage promising new arts journalists. £2,000 will be awarded to the person who submits the best writing on brand new work in the arts. It must not have previously been published in print or on the internet. The winning essay might take the form of an interview or profile of a writer, artist or musician; a piece on a new artistic movement or venture; or a review of a book, film, a concert, a ballet or a stage play. The word limit is 1,500 words and closing date is 15th October 2013. The winner will have an opportunity to have their work published in print and online editions of the Observer, and on the International Anthony Burgess Foundation website. For more information and the full terms and conditions take a look at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation website.
