The Guardian are seeking entries for this year’s Mary Stott prize, awarded in honour of the pioneering journalist who edited the women’s pages of the Guardian between 1957 and 1972.
Candidates should submit an original, unpublished article of 1500 words on any issue that specifically affects women.
It could be an opinion piece about a current feminist debate, a stylishly written report on a contemporary trend, an interview with a particularly inspiring woman, or a portrait of a long-forgotten but fascinating historical figure. The key is simply that it should be lively and interesting, and perfect for publication on the women’s pages.
The prize is £500.
