BBC short story competition is now open. To enter you need to be British and/or resident in the UK and have a prior record of creative writing publication in the UK.
The prize is £15,000, with £600 going to all short listed entries. That seems a heck of a lot of money, especially as it presumably comes from licence payers. What do you think – can a prize be too big?
If playwriting is more your thing, then take a look at this competition. The prize is £2,200 and to have your play broadcast on the world service. Thanks to Hilary for bringing this one to my attention.
