The ITT Short Story Competition is run by the Institute of Technology Tallaght, in conjunction with South Dublin County Council, and in association with the Red Line Book Festival, and is free to enter. Entries should be submitted via the online form between 14.00 GMT (Irish Time), on July 2nd, 2018 and 12.00 GMT (Irish Time) on August 13th, 2018. No late entries will be accepted. No physical or printed copies will be accepted. Entries must be in short story format (a short work of fiction) between 1,500 and 2,000 words long, and should be completely the entrant’s own work written in English (high standard), original, unpublished. There is no restriction on theme or style, however the planned 2018 anthology will be called Stand Fast! and they are looking for strong stories that (even loosely) reflect this title. IMPORTANT: falsification of information and/or identity, plagiarism, racial discrimination and bigotry will see entries disqualified.
The judges’ decision is final. No correspondence will be entered into. No criticism or advice will be provided.
- First Prize: €500
- Second Prize: €250
- Third Prize: €150
