Now in its fourth year, the Young Stationers’ Prize recognises a high-achiever under the age of 40 in the communications and content industries – including but not limited to, printing, packaging, publishing, media, digital and social media, marketing and public relations, journalism, libraries, archives, and copyright.
The judges will be looking for demonstrable achievements in the nominees’ careers so far, an outstanding contribution to the sector in which they are working or success outside their immediate world of work in interesting ways which are relevant to the ethos and trades of the Stationers’ Company.
The prize, a trophy kindly donated by The Worshipful Company of Pewterers, will be presented at the Young Stationers’ Annual Dinner in Stationers’ Hall, on Monday, 24 July 2017, with guest speaker journalist, political commentator and author Dr Simon Heffer.
Past winners of the Young Stationers’ Prize are:  Ella Kahn and Bryony Woods, founders of Diamond Kahn & Woods Literary Agency; Angela Clarke, novelist, playwright, and columnist; and Katie Glass, of the Sunday Times.
To enter, the nominator or applicant should include: a brief CV; a short statement by the nominator (or a personal statement); and at least one additional letter of reference. Candidates or nominators can submit any supporting materials or specimens of work which they believe will strengthen their application.
Applications may be sent by email to ys@stationers.org, or by post to Young Stationers’ Prize, c/o Stationers’ Hall, Ave Maria Lane, London EC4M 7DD. If sending by post, please consider also sending us and email with your contact details.
