Young person's essay competition promoted by Make Votes Count

Make Votes Count are not so much looking for a balanced academic essay as a well-informed opinion piece that could (and may if it's good enough) appear in a national newspaper.

All essays will be read and short-listed by the policy staff at the Electoral Reform Society. The short-listed essays will be judged by David Lipsey (chair Make Votes Count) and Polly Toynbee (Guardian columnist). The decision of the judges will be final.

Open to any UK resident under the age of 25 (apart from employees or family of employees of any Make Votes Count partner organisation).

The closing date is midday Tuesday 26 April (late entries will not be accepted). Word limit 1200 maximum. Please e-mail your entry to Please put the words 'essay competition entry' in the title bar, and put your name, date of birth, address and contact numbers at the top of the file containing your essay. Please send the essay in a word or text file.
