The Tom-Gallon Trust Award
An award of £1,000, financed by a bequest made by Miss Nellie Tom-Gallon in memory of her brother.
The award must be made to a writer of fiction who has had at least one short story accepted for publication, and who has serious writing ambitions. The submitted story should be traditional, rather than experimental, in character, and the financial circumstances of the writer should be taken into account. The Tom-Gallon Trust Award was previously awarded biennially alongside the Olive Cook Award. The Olive Cook Award was last awarded in 2010.
