Doha: The British Council has made a worldwide call for applications to the ELTons 2013.
Celebrating its eleventh year, the awards, run by the British Council and sponsored by Cambridge ESOL, are a celebration of innovation and excellence in English Language Teaching (ELT) from around the world.
ELT professionals can apply in five categories this year: Excellence in Course Innovation, Innovation in Learner Resources, Innovation in Teacher Resources, Digital Innovation, and Local Innovation, as well as The Macmillan Education Award for Innovative Writing.
The Macmillan Education Award for Innovative Writing is sponsored by Macmillan Education and gives previously unpublished writers the opportunity to win a £1,000 prize and have their work published. Through this award the British Council aims to discover and encourage up and coming ELT authors to take the next step in their writing careers.
Any ELT professional can apply for consideration for one of the categories including authors, teachers, trainers and publishers.
Applications will be judged by a panel of ELT experts and the winners are announced at the ELTons awards ceremony, to be held in London on 22 May 2013.
“The ELTons have grown to become an essential fixture in the ELT calendar and we are proud to host this event with our sponsors Cambridge ESOL and Macmillan Education. The ELTon awards are a wonderful opportunity to showcase innovative ELT products and creative ELT authors from around the worldm,” Michael Carrier, Director of Business Innovation and Partnerships for English and Exams at the British Council, said.
