There are still three weeks to go until the deadline for the 2010 Commonwealth Foundation Short Story Competition.
Regional prizes are first awarded (£500) and these winners go on to compete with one another for the main prize of £2000.
25 of the winning and highly commended stories will be recorded and sold on CD's, and broadcast on radio stations throughout the different regions of the Commonwealth.
You must be aged 19 or over and a citizen of a Commonwealth country to enter. You can be either a professional or amateur writer.
Stories should be original, unpublished, written in English and no more than 600 words long. Entries will be submitted in plain text via the online application form.
There is no entry fee. Only one entry may be submitted per person. This can either be a general entry, or a story on the Commonwealth Day 2010 theme (Science, Technology and Society), or a story for children.
