CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: The Susie Smith Memorial Prize for writing on HIV & AIDS

Susie Smith, a pioneer in the fight against HIV and AIDS, worked for Oxfam GB for 30 years. Click here for webpage.

With this prize, Oxfam wants to acknowledge her commitment to sub-Saharan Africa and her constant willingness to challenge conventional thinking. The prize of £3,000 will be awarded for a single piece of writing on HIV and AIDS from sub-Saharan Africa which has already been published.

Any writing – possibly an article, poetry, fiction or a chapter of a book – of up to 10,000 words and published in English since 2006 will be eligible.

The judges will focus on the quality of the submissions and on the impact the writing has had. All submissions must be received by March 31st 2009. Please include a cover letter outlining the impact your piece has had. We expect to announce the winner in July 2009.

To enter, send your submission, with a cover letter, here.
