The Times/Chicken House Children’s Fiction Competition

Chicken House no longer accept unsolicited manuscripts, but they do offer unpublished and unagented writers of children's fiction the chance to submit their work to the annual Times/Chicken House Children’s Fiction Competition. They say 
We're looking for original ideas, a fresh voice and a story that children will love!
First prize is a worldwide publishing contract with Chicken House with a royalty advance of £10,000, plus representation from a top children’s literary agent.
To enter, you must have written a completed full-length novel suitable for children/young adults aged somewhere between 7 and 18 years. By full-length we suggest a minimum of 30,000 words and ask that manuscripts entered do not exceed 80,000 words in length.
Deadline: Sunday 18 December 2016
Fee: £15
