The Julia & Martin Wilson Short Story Competition
Sun January 14, 2024 @ 8:00 am - Thu March 28, 2024 @ 6:30 pm GMT
In 2020 we launched a new short story prize in addition to our art competition in order to encourage creativity during the lockdown. The prize was generously sponsored by festival benefactors Julia & Martin Wilson who also judged the very varied and eclectic entries from across the globe. The competition is now a regular event.
Entries need to be a maximum of 2,000 words with unlimited entries allowed per entrant. No theme to adhere to.
We are delighted to announce that the prize fund has doubled this coming year!
Main prize (over 16s): £800
Ages 11-16yrs: £100
Age 10 and under: £1o0
The 2024 competition will open for entries on 14th January, so start working on your entries!
The deadline for entries is 6pm on 28th March 2024.
Please do not enter any previously submitted entries as they will not qualify for consideration.
Winners will be announced towards the end of April.
There is a fee of £12 per entry for over 16s for the main prize of £800, but the competition is free to enter for 16 and unders.
Entries will be submitted via an online form this time – details to be announced nearer the time.
