How To Submit A Work
Please read all of this section before submitting:
Submissions for the 2021 Barbellion Prize are now open and close on October 31st 2021.
Submitting a work to us is simple, whether you are a publisher or an author.
There are no forms to fill-in or fees required for submitting a work or for being shortlisted for the prize.
To send us a suitable file (ebook, PDF, MOBI) of a book that is eligible for the 2021 prize (published between Nov 2020 - Oct 2021), you can do so via our email - . Authors or agents can also submit works, not just publishers.
Again, for a work to be eligible for the 2021 prize, it needs to have been published between November 2020 and October 31st 2021.
Self-published works (ebooks or physical books) are also accepted, but we do not accept unpublished manuscripts.
Works published in November or December 2021 (after October 31st) can be considered for the following 2022 prize.
The judging panel also have the right call in books that have not been put forward for submission.
If you want to send us a physical copy of a work then contact us and we will provide you with a mailing address (we do not have an official premises or PO box at this time).
The prize is international and works newly translated into English are also eligible.
If you are unsure about whether a work is eligible, please consult our home page or our FAQs. We accept works from almost all genres.
We must be clear, given enquires, that The Barbellion Prize is a book prize, and not a writing competition for unpublished writing.
If you have any more queries then please contact the administrator of the prize via our email.
