Submission Deadline: September 30th, 2014.
The Web of Life Foundation runs an annual competition looking for the best non-technical, English language writing on any themes related to political/social/environmental issues.
Subject and Theme
All essays submitted to the competition must focus on political, social or environmental issues and address the current year’s theme. Essays that are off subject and off theme will be rejected.
The theme for the 2014 competition is “Leadership: What are the characteristics of effective leadership for the 21st Century?”
Everyone is welcome. Any one individual may submit up to three entries.
Entries should be written in prose in the English language. You can submit essays or short stories, factual commentary or fiction – whichever way and whichever writing style you choose to communicate your ideas. Just make it compelling.

- Submissions should be no longer than 2,000 words.
- Essays may have been published before provided you have the necessary permissions to re-publish.

- A further $500 will be awarded to the second placed entry.
- Shortlisted entries may be published as a book of collected essays.
