The art of just enough

  • It may be the sprint of creative writing but that doesn’t mean you can rush the creative process. Take us somewhere fast then let your story marinate in the reader’s mind. Make every one of your 250 words count. There is no minimum number of words, just like there is no limit to your imagination. They say lightning doesn’t strike twice but we want to feel the electricity in your story right from the beginning through to the very end.

First prize: £1,000:

  • One of the most generous flash fiction prizes, the winning story also features in our anthology, a chance to see your words on the printed page. That’s not all. It opens up further opportunities where your work needs to have been published. You will also be invited to take part in our awards celebration, receive feedback from the judges and our professional partners. Finally, we will champion you not only as one of our winners but part of the Bridport Prize family.

Second prize: £500:

  • Your flash fiction features in the Bridport Prize anthology – your words on the printed page. It means you are published and can pursue other opportunities. Our awards celebration is also recognition of your success and we hope all of this inspires you to pursue your writing dreams.

Third prize: £250:

  • Your flash fiction is included in the Bridport Prize anthology, which gives you access to other opportunities as you are now published. There’s the chance to join our awards celebration, hear from our partners and take in the fact your writing is recognised, valued and out there.
