We're very happy to announce the inauguration of the Byte Bursary, which will award one young outstanding member of the publishing industry with free membership to the Byte the Book, free access to our other London-based publishing events and mentoring and support through the year.


Congratulations to our first recipient Rebecca Needes. Rebecca is Vice Chair of the Society of Young Publishers and is currently an editor at AA Publishing, working on illustrated and narrative non-fiction, she tweets as @RhetoricAlley.

We presented this award to Rebecca as we have been impressed both by her intelligence and her tenacity and wanted to do all we could to support someone of her calibre.

We intend to make a similar award every April so if you know of someone that you think should be honoured in this way please get in touch with us at
