The Cesar Egido Serrano Foundation’s fifth international flash fiction contest is now accepting entries. Administered by the Museo de las Palabras (Museum of Words) in Madrid, the competition is for very short fiction pieces of up to a maximum of 100 words. The winner will receive a prize of US$20,000, with three runners-up each receiving $1000.
This contest is open to writers from all countries and entries are accepted in four languages: English, Spanish, Arabic, and Hebrew. The slogan for the 2017 contest is ‘The Word, bridging the gap between different cultures and religion’ but there are no subject or genre restrictions. All stories entered must be original and unpublished.
The Cesar Egido Serrano Foundation is based in Spain and is a private, not-for-profit foundation. The foundation’s aim is to encourage dialogue between different cultures, ideas, religions, and sensibilities.
Entries for the Museum of Words flash fiction contest are open until Thursday 23 November 2017. Entries must be submitted via an online form. The contest rules limit the number of entries per writer to two. There is no entry fee.
