A Call for Contributions: ‘Australia, let’s talk about China’

On 13 May, we launched a project titled Australia-China Agenda 2013. Now, the Australian Centre on China in the World (CIW) is inviting Australian citizens and residents who are students or who have completed an undergraduate degree within the last three years to submit entries to our New Voices Competition. For a flyer announcing the competition, see CIW New Voices.

Entries should be in the form of a policy brief or a short essay written to the Australian Government addressing what it should do in regard to China policy following the September 2013 Federal Election.

Entries should be 1500 to 2000 words in length.

Essays judged to be outstanding by a distinguished selection panel will be published on our site, The China Story and logged in The Australia-China Story archive. They may also be included in the print version of Australia-China Agenda 2013 that will be presented to members of Parliament, as well as to key opinion makers and the media following the election.

Authors of published entries will be funded by CIW to come to Canberra for the launch of the book Australia-China Agenda 2013 and asked to speak at a New Voices Forum. The most outstanding entry will be awarded a cash prize of $2,500.

Closing date for submissions: 1 August 2013
