We have become aware of fraudulent emails advertising a scam competition that mimics our Emerging Writers’ Prize. The competition targets young, school-aged children. The fraudulent was sent from the following email address: Aawpfirstname.lastname@example.org
As many of you will know, we were recently partnered with UWRF for our Emerging Writers’ Prize. The winner was announced September 1.
We have been in touch with UWRF; they had no prior knowledge of the fraudulent emails.
We have been in contact with Creative Writing Ink (the organisation identified in the email). Creative Writing Ink have never alleged a connection with AAWP and had no prior knowledge of the fraudulent emails.
If you have any questions about AAWP initiatives please visit our Opportunities page.
