This competition is open to anyone who has had no more than three pieces of fiction published in paying venues. You don't have to be a member of the British Fantasy Society either, although non-members must pay a £5 admin fee to enter. Nor does the story have to be fantasy - science fiction and horror are equally welcome.
First prize is £50 and publication by the British Fantasy Society. Runner-up prize is £25 and publication by the British Fantasy Society.
Entries should be no more than 5,000 words in length. Deadline is 31 August 2009.
Send all submissions - in standard manuscript format, attached as .doc or .rtf - to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put "BFS Short Story Competition" as the title of your email.
