Young Writer Competitions

Become the next Young Writer (a short story writing competition for creative writers) or Young Anthropologist (for writing about identity and culture).

Both competitions have a £1,000 first prize, and two runner-up prizes of £50. All shortlisted entries will also receive a small prize.

You must register for the competition and submit your final entry by the deadline of Monday 1 August 2022.

Please note that the Young Columnist Competition is not running this year but will return in 2023.
