Today we launch an opportunity for anyone with an interest in non-fiction military books, broadly defined, to suggest titles for the 2020 Competition. In order to be considered, any book must have been newly published in the United Kingdom in the calendar year 2019.
At the same time, we are also looking for serving Judges. To be eligible, individuals must be serving soldiers of any rank from Private to Colonel. The Judging Panel will be chosen in February 2020 and will reflect the diversity of the modern British Army.
If you wish to submit a book for inclusion on the Long-list or apply for a place as a Judge, please send an e-mail to [email protected] explaining either your book choice or the reasons why you should be considered as a Judge. Applications and submissions close on Friday 31 January 2020.
