IGGY/Litro Young Person's Short Story Competition
For our "younger" friends:

Inspiring, encouraging and acknowledging the creativity of young people is a common goal for IGGY and Litro Magazine. Therefore we have come together to run a major new short story award for young people: the Young Person’s Short Story Competition, open to young people from around the world aged 11-19.

The Prize

In addition to a cash prize of £2,500, the winner will be published in Litro magazine and will see parts of their work displayed on a poster in a London Underground station. The winner and two runners-up will also have their story published on Litro Online (www.litro.co.uk) and on the IGGY website.

An illustrious panel of judges has been assembled for the award, including:

* novelist and author of international bestseller The Outcast Sadie Jones
* acclaimed author and actor Ian Kelly
* award-winning poet Laura Dockrill
* musician, author and IGGY academic Peter Blegvad
