£10,000 FOOD AND DRINK SHORT STORY PRIZE



Judges this year are Stephen Fry & Prue Leith…


An introduction from Jeremy Mogford:

I am lucky enough to have enjoyed a lifetime in the hospitality industry with my involvement with Browns Restaurants, Rules in London and my current Oxford collection of the Old Bank and Old Parsonage Hotels, Quod Restaurant, Parsonage Grill and Gee’s Restaurant.

Wishing to give something back to the hospitality industry which has been very good to me and combining it with my longstanding link to literary Oxford, in 2013 I decided to sponsor a brand new short story prize whi
ch had to specifically relate to the subject of food, drink or both…

In 2019 the contest attracted 1,019 entries from around the world. The overall winner was Elisabeth Ingram Wallace for her story ‘Corvidae.’ Download the story here (PDF) or listen to an audio version below.







ENTRY GUIDELINES...

ENTRIES FOR THE 2020 PRIZE ARE NOW OPEN…

Food and drink must be at the heart of the winning tale. Your short story could, for instance, be about crime or intrigue; about a chance meeting over a drink; a life-changing conversation over dinner; or perhaps the details of a relationship explored through food or drink.

We are overjoyed to announce that our two judges in the 2020 competition are none other than Stephen Fry & Prue Leith!
