The Commonwealth Foundation mentions on its website that the deadline for entries in the Commonwealth Short Story Competition is May 11.
The Commonwealth Short Story Competition is an annual scheme to promote new creative writing. It was established in 1996. According to the Commonwealth Foundation website, it is funded by the Commonwealth Foundation and the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association, who work together to administer the scheme.
“The scheme exists to increase understanding and appreciation of Commonwealth cultures and to promote rising literary talents. Each year 26 winning and highly commended stories from the different regions of the Commonwealth are recorded onto CDs and broadcast on radio stations across the Commonwealth. The winner receives a prize of £2,000 and there are regional prizes of £500. The competition is open to all people who are citizens of a Commonwealth member country,” says the Commonwealth Foundation.
