International Development Journalism competition accepting entries [UK]

Deadline: 

June 13, 2011

U.K. writers interested in global development issues can enter a contest.

The 2011 International Development Journalism Competition, sponsored by Barclays and GlaxoSmithKline, gives professional and amateur writers from the U.K. a chance to be published in the newspaper or website of the Guardian.

To enter, write a 650-1000 word article on an aspect of global poverty on one of the 16 themes listed here.

Judges are looking for entries that are clear and concise, supported by factual evidence and accessible to people who don't know much about the subject. Last year's winning entries focused on Sierra Leone and Uganda.
