How to enter

Here you will find all the information you need to enter the competition.

First read all the rules, then fill out your entry form, uploading your story in PDF form. Then make your payment and your all done.

Remember that your story file must be in PDF and also be sure that there is nothing inside your story that identifies you (e.g. your name or email address!) as your story will be judged anonymously.

Yes it’s okay to send the file to us with your name and story title in the file name, as that just helps us manage the entries. When we send these stories onto the judges all they will see will be the story title. This is top secret and there is only one person on the organising committee who will know until the day of the award ceremony who wrote which story!

logo-ambassade-usaThanks to the generosity of the US Embassy in Paris and the US Consul in Strasbourg, the first 100 entries in the junior categories (native and non-native under 18 years) will be free of charge.
