Young Writer Competitions

The Young Columnist is not running in 2022 but will return in 2023.

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.
