Here's a new spin on a writing competition. Organise one with huge prizes. And then don't tell anyone about it!
Thanks goodness for Lydia Teh, who happened on an advert in the Star yesterday inviting entries for the 2006 (yes, you read that right, 2006) Utusan Group ExxonMobil Prize for Literature Young Adult Novel Competition.
I googled around and tried to find out something about it online, but with no success - not even on the newspaper's website. Curious and curiouser!
Some of the details are missing from Lydia's cutting but I posted about the competition before and guess the address and phone contact still apply. And even though the last date is 3oth April, as Lydia points out, the 2007 should be just around the corner, so get writing.
