Please note that it can take some time for our writing competitions to be judged and the winners announced. The length of time is dependant on the number of submissions received. We take the judging process very seriously and ensure that the best submission wins. This means that each submission is read and re-read to build up a high quality short list and then the process begins again.

    How does one who is not in the U.K. pay? PayPal?

    I was wondering, its said above that you must be over 18 to win the cash prizes. Must you be over 18 to participate in the contest too? If yes, is ther an entry deadline? If yes, again, when is it?
    Thank you,

    You may enter the competition but we are unable to award a cash prize for those under the age of 18 however, should your submission be placed, we can allocate an alternative award for you. The closing date of the Open Fiction Competition is 5th June 2011
    Best wishes,
