Welcome to the Blogging Prizes! It doesn't matter if English is not your first language: we focus on the quality of your argument and the originality of your ideas. The winner gets up to $2500, with a 2nd Prize of up to $1200 and a 3rd Prize of up to $500. 

To participate, authors had to write an article of 600 to 1500 words on one of the topics below: 

  1. Do schools and universities have a responsibility to educate their students on social behaviour alongside the academic?
  2. Is gender segregation in schools beneficial or detrimental?
  3. "Vision without execution is just hallucination." - Henry Ford. Discuss.
  4. "The arts are of incalculable worth in what it means to be a human being." - Philip Pullman. What is the role of arts in education?

The Jury will focus on the quality of your arguments and the originality of your ideas.

What happens next? 

On 25 November, the Editors announced the articles that were shortlisted: these were the articles that received the most votes, the articles that were most debated and the articles that may not have got much public attention but that deserved to be shortlisted for their intrinsic quality.

The Editors also introduced the Jury for this year's writing competition. The Jury will focus on the quality of your arguments and the originality of your ideas.

On 12 December, the Editors will announce the Winner, Runner-Up Prizes and Matched Prizes!
