We regret to announce that the James White Award will not be running a competition this year. Due to technical issues with the current website, and problems caused by a certain global crises beyond our control, we have not been able to set a timetable for this year and, with a great deal of reluctance, we have concluded that it will not be possible to schedule the competition in 2020.
We are sorry to disappoint those who were looking forward to entering the competition.
We fully intend to return better and stronger next year, so please keep an eye on this website, our Twitter account (@jameswhiteaward) or our Facebook page.
Good luck with your writing and see you back here soon.
Martin McGrath, the Award Administrator, said:
“We have been put off this decision for months, hoping (perhaps increasingly foolishly) that we could come up with a fix for the problems we are facing within a timescale that would allow us to go ahead this year. Ultimately, however, it simply hasn’t been possible to get things in place in time and we have – with very great reluctance – made the decision to not hold the competition this year. We will, however, be back in 2021.”
