Macmillan Education Innovative Writing Award

British Council announces a new international creative writing category

The British Council has teamed up with Macmillan Education in a bid to discover aspiring ELT creative authors with its Macmillan Education Innovative Writing Award.

The award gives previously unpublished writers the opportunity to win a £1,000 prize and have their work published. The inaugural award will also give the winner a chance to develop their career in publishing through a mentoring programme supported by Macmillan Education. The British Council's ELTons Awards celebrate the innovation and creativity in the English Language teaching community worldwide.

This new ELTons Award category joins the long-established group of British Council Innovation Awards.
Michael Carrier, British Council Head of English Language Innovation said: `The ELTons have grown to become an essential fixture in the ELT calendar as a celebration of innovation in the sector. I am delighted that Macmillan Education have partnered with the British Council to sponsor a new Innovative Writing Award category that will recognise and reward aspiring creative writers looking to make their first break into the English Language publishing industry.

Any ELT professional can apply for consideration for one of the categories including authors, teachers, trainers and publishers. The call for entries is now open and an application pack can be downloaded from The deadline for entries is September 30, 2009. Now in its seventh year running, the ELTons is the only international awards ceremony that rewards the wealth of innovative new English Language teaching (ELT) resources that help English Language learners and teachers achieve their goals.

Applications are judged by a panel of ELT experts and the winners will be announced at a prestigious ELTons Awards ceremony, to be held in London on March 3, 2010. Each winning entry will receive a cash prize of £1,000 and will become part of a growing network of ELTons alumni around the world.
