Dawn Foster (1986-2021) was a brilliant and fearless working-class journalist who told the stories of those whose housing situation all too often left them voiceless.

In her memory, HCI Skills Gateway in partnership with Red Pepper magazine has launched the Dawn Foster Memorial Essay Prize, open to any UK-based writer aged 35 or under, for a 1,500 word essay on Britain’s housing crisis.

Please submit your entry by 31 January 2022.

First Prize: £1,500 and your essay published in Red Pepper’s print magazine during 2022.

There will also be four runner-up prizes of £200 awarded.
