5000 Creative Writing Awards 
Thursday, 21 February 2008 

The Bridport Prize International Creative Writing Competition was founded in 1973 and has steadily grown in stature and prestige. Right from the start the competition attracted entries from all parts of the UK and from overseas. Today many thousands of entries are received from over 80 countries.

The first prize in each category for short story and poetry is 5,000, second prize 1,000 and third prize 500. An additional 10 supplementary prizes (for each category) of 50 each are awarded. The entry fee for the year 2008 is 6 per poem or story. The top four poems are entered for the Forward Prize for Poetry (Best Single Poem), an award not open to the general public. The top 13 stories (British citizens only) are submitted to the National Short Story Prize.
