Flash 500 Competition - deadline 31st December 2014 #seanocarolan.com #writing #Flash #Competitions #contests

Flash 500 Competition 

Welcome to the Flash 500 Competition! When it comes to prizes, it often seems as though flash fiction is the poor relation of writing competitions. From the first quarter 2014, we have increased our second prize to £200 and third prize to £100, making this a flash fiction competition where the prize money truly reflects the skill required to encapsulate an entire story in just 500 words.

Now in its fifth year, this quarterly open-themed competition has closing dates of 31st March, 30th June, 30th September and 31st December. The results will be announced within six weeks of each closing date and the three winning entries each quarter will be published on this website.

Entry fee: £5 for one story, £8 for two stories

Optional critiques: £10 per story

Prizes will be awarded as follows:

First: £300 plus publication in Words with JAM

Second: £200

Third: £100

Highly commended: Choice of The Writer’s ABC Checklist or Bad Moon Rising

Payment options and entry instructions can be found on the Competition Entry Page
