Submission Guidelines & Conditions of Entry
1. This competition began 24 years ago. Australian writers are invited to enter a short story, written in any style for the first prize of $1000. Manuscripts must be original works, in English, and must not have been previously accepted for publication, which includes websites. Any style of story is acceptable. No entry form is necessary.
Shortlisted writers will receive UQP publications. Stories will not be returned.
2. Entries must be typed and on one side of A4 sized paper. They must not exceed 2,500 words and only the title of the story, not the author’s name, is to appear on the manuscript. In order to ensure anonymity, your name, address and the title of the story should be on a separate page, accompanying the entry. Entry is on the basis that the short story is your own original work. You may send any number of entries as long as the fee for each is paid.
3. The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
