  • A writing sample of between up to 5000 words or up to 50 pages.

  • A description of the overall book

  • CV or biographical note with contact email

  • Order Number as proof of payment of entry fee

Entry fee is 7 euros. This goes towards running costs of the prize and its viable continued existence in the future.

It is envisioned that this is a reward for the best contemporary (and for want of a better word) creative writing that is formally innovative, genre bending and which may point toward a 21st century supra-national tradition that is continually in the process of emerging. A familiarity with the BDP backlist may point toward the arena of literature and contemporary art in which the press is interested in producing.
