I’m a member of SCBWI and am entering the Delacorte Press Contest for a First Young Adult Novel. Can you tell me how many entries they usually receive and how they judge them?

Q: I’m a member of SCBWI and am entering the Delacorte Press Contest for a First Young Adult Novel. Can you tell me how many entries they usually receive and how they judge them?

According to Random House’s publicity department, they receive anywhere from 200-500 entries for the contest, it varies year to year. The Delacorte editorial staff judges the entries for editorial merit. The prize includes a book contract covering world rights for a hardcover and a paperback edition, an advance and royalties.
