Nine Dots Prize
The Nine Dots Prize seeks to reward original thinking in response to contemporary societal issues. Each Prize cycle lasts two years, with a new question being announced every other October.
Submissions have opened for the next cycle of the Nine Dots Prize, which this year is asking entrants to answer the following question in 3,000 words: “Is there still no place like home?” The winner will receive US$100,000 and a book deal with Cambridge University Press, for a book which will expand on the ideas in their response to the Prize question.
Deadline: Jan. 21, 2019
All those 18 years of age and over are welcome to enter but responses and the resulting book must be in English. We are looking for innovative thinking, whether this comes from new voices or from experienced authors. The Prize’s heartland is in the analysis of contemporary society and societal challenges, and we welcome responses that draw on all disciplines and cross-discipline thinking. Joint entries will be considered, although proposals that put forward a number of authors all contributing single sections (such as an edited collection) will not be accepted.
