The Martin Wills Memorial Trust


The Martin Wills Memorial Trust, a UK-registered charity, is offering its sixth annual awards for journalistic features on any aspect of horse-racing written by young people resident in the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland. Particular importance will be attached to originality of thought, clarity of exposition, and elegance of style. The winning article will be published in the Racing Post and The Sporting Life.

Those aged under twenty-six on 24 March 1998 (other than employees of the national and racing press and agencies, and previous prizewinners, who are not eligible) are invited to submit a single typewritten article of not more than 1,000 words by 24 March 1998 to the Trustees, The Martin Wills Memorial Trust, 12 Tokenhouse Yard, London, EC2R 7AN. Name, date of birth, address, and telephone number should be stated. The article must not be published prior to the announcement of the winners of the awards. No correspondence will be entered into, entries will not be returned, and the judges' decision is final.

The prizes will be £1,500 to the winner and £750 to the runner-up. The awards will be announced and presented at Newmarket on Friday, 1 May, where those successful will be given an expenses paid day's racing, including a reception in a private luncheon room on the Rowley Mile Course, and a tour of two leading stables.
