The BPA First Novel Award is open to unrepresented and unpublished authors for a novel in any adult fiction genre.
We are thrilled to announce the winners of the First Novel Award 2020. Our judges this year were literary agents Caroline Wood and Carrie Plitt of Felicity Bryan Associates and author Anna Hope. More than 950 entries were received from around the world with all genres represented. The standard of entries was incredibly high and it was difficult to land on a longlist of 20 titles and a shortlist of 6.
Many thanks to all those who entered from around the world.
Submissions for the 2021 First Novel Award will open in January 2021.
Congratulations to our winners and to all those listed.
