As a charity, we strive to keep costs as low as possible. However, the pandemic and increasing costs across many areas of The Bridport Prize have led us to reluctantly increase our fees from 1st April 2022. These will be:

Flash Fiction £11

Poetry £12

Short Story £14

Novel £24

The novel has maintained the same entry fee for eight years, whilst other categories have stayed constant for over three years.

There is still time to submit your work ahead of the proposed increase on 1st April. After that, the new fees will apply.

Our competition deadline for all entries is Midnight on 31 May 2022 (UK time).

Bursaries available 

We have a robust scheme of bursaries available for under represented writers. No proof of income is required. Find out more here.

Thank you for your understanding.
