Entries are now open, closing at midnight on Monday September 16, 2019.

The winner will be announced in early December and the winning essay published in The Saturday Paper on December 21.

Please read the Guidelines and the Terms & Conditions thoroughly before submitting your essay.

Please also note that each entry must be submitted as a single pdf or Word document that includes a cover sheet citing the title of your essay, your name, and your contact details. Finally, we ask that you give the document (as distinct from the essay) an appropriate title, rather than simply ‘Horne Prize entry’ or similar. Your last name followed by the essay’s title is best.
