The 2017 Commonwealth Short Story Prize is now open for entries.
Entries close 1st November 2016.

The Prize is awarded for the best piece of unpublished short fiction (2,000–5,000 words) in English written by a citizen of a Commonwealth country. All stories submitted must be unpublished, but both unpublished and published writers are eligible to apply.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 competition is free to enter.

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 all other languages are eligible. They also accept entries in the original Bengali, Kiswahili, Portuguese and Samoan.

Please read the entry and eligibility guidelines, downloadable from the entry page, before submitting your story via the online entry form, available via the link here.
