AND A REMINDER ABOUT THIS YEAR’S KEY INFORMATION . . .

WILL YOU CONTACT ME ONCE YOU’VE READ MY SUBMISSION EVEN IF I DON’T WIN OR MAKE THE SHORTLIST?
We would love to contact everybody but, due to the high number of entries we’ve received, it’s just not possible.  We will be in touch only with the shortlisted authors.

WILL YOU PROVIDE FEEDBACK ON MY STORY?
We’re sorry, but no.  It’s not feasible. 

WHAT WILL I WIN?
The winner will be offered representation by Greenhouse. 
Two runners up will receive a selection of children’s books chosen by the judging panel.

Please note that we reserve the right not to award a winner if we feel that no entry reaches a high enough standard.

WHO WILL BE JUDGING THE FUNNY PRIZE?
The Children’s Editorial team at Faber & Faber Ltd and Polly Nolan at the Greenhouse Literary Agency.

Thank you to the dozens and dozens of people who entered the Funny Prize 2014.  We’re busy reading - and hopefully laughing at (in a good way) - your work.  Good luck to you all.  And to everybody else, we look forward to seeing your funny fiction and picture books in 2015!

The Greenhouse Funny Prize Team.
