Short Story Contest 2017 is the cultural initiative of the Commonwealth foundation set up to inspire and connect writers and storytellers across the world. They believe that well-told stories can help people make sense of events, engage with others and take action to bring about change.
The Prize is awarded for the best piece of unpublished short fiction (2,000–5,000 words) in English written by a citizen of a Commonwealth country. All stories submitted must be unpublished, but both unpublished and published writers are eligible to apply.
The international judging panel comprises one judge from each of the five regions – Africa, Asia, Canada and Europe, the Caribbean and the Pacific. Please note that while the entries will be judged regionally, all judges will read and deliberate on entries from all regions. Regional winners receive £2,500 and the overall winner receives £5,000.
Short stories translated into English from other languages are also eligible.
Application can be done online only.
