The competition is open to writers of any nationality writing in English, 16 years old and over at the time of the closing date.

All entries are judged anonymously.

Entrants may withdraw entries from the competition by notification in writing. Entry fees will not be refunded.
Entries will be disqualified if they exceed the word count.
