Our 2022 Bridport Prize bursaries are now open. These give under represented writers a free entry to the Bridport Prize competition in any category. 

Don’t forget: Our short story, poetry and flash fiction genres are open to international applicants, whilst the novel award is open to writers living in Britain and Ireland, British writers living overseas and writers living in British Overseas Territories.

These bursaries have been generously donated by writers entering our competition who want to support other writers with their work. All applications are considered in the strictest confidence. We don’t require proof of income, your word is good enough.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
