International Writing Contest Endorsed By Hollywood Celebrity Looking For Diverse Stories From All Cultures

The Page Turner Awards is inviting young writers, aged 18 to 25, to enter their writing projects into the 2022 awards. In particular, the awards judging panel is keen to discover unique young voices from diverse cultures.

The team at Page Turner Awards passionately believes that talented writers can be from any background, age, race, religion, or interest and for the 2021 awards, many aspiring writers walked off the red carpet with life-changing prizes.

They celebrated several winning authors, writers, and screenwriters at a glittering online ceremony where Paul Michael Glaser, from Starsky and Hutch fame, was a special guest to announce the winners.

Young Writer Award Winner: At the tender age of 23, Jaidyn Groth, won this award for her submission, The Other Side of Sunshine. Jaidyn is a talent to watch because she also won second place for another story she submitted.

The Page Turner Awards, sponsored by ProWritingAid, offers authors, writers, and screenwriters the chance to enter the first 10 pages of their writing project, where a judging panel of literary experts and film producers will read the work. The judging panel for 2022 is made up of literary agents and publishers looking for new writing talent (including our very own Editor-in-Chief Jenni Harrison!), plus successful authors keen to find the best book title, cover and series, and film producers looking for scripts from screenwriters.

One new unpublished writer won literary agency representation, while a screenwriter won literary management. Another new writer won a publishing deal, seven independent authors won an audiobook production from Spectrum Audiobooks, plus one other won a publishing package (including an edit, book cover and book trailer), and another author won a book adaptation.

Paul Michael Glaser said, “Thank you to the Page Turner Awards for involving me. It has been a huge honour to be amongst so many fantastic writers.”
