Ambit launches its first annual short fiction competition in May, after the success of our poetry competition last year.
The competition will be judged by Alison Moore, and will run from May 1st – July 15th. Winners will be announced on September 1st 2015. First, second and third prizes will be awarded (£500, £250 and £100 respectively) and the three winners will be published in Ambit 222, out in October, and invited to read at our launch party with Alison Moore.
We are accepting stories of anything up to 1000 words. It costs £7 to submit one story to our competition, but if you enter enough stories you will qualify for a free one year subscription to Ambit (so, 4 entries for UK subscription, 6 for the rest of the world).
Please submit your entries via our Submittable portal where full directions can be found.
Do read our competition guidelines carefully at ambitmagazine.co.uk.
All stories will be read with great care and completely anonymously.
Good luck to all!
The Ambit Editors
