Bristol Prize

Welcome to the Bristol Short Story Prize – an annual international writing competition open to all published and unpublished, UK and non-UK based writers. We publish an annual anthology of the winning stories as well as presenting cash prizes.

The 2018 Bristol Short Story Prize has been won by Dizz Tate for her story, Cowboy Boot. 2nd prize went to Chloe Wilson and a joint 3rd prize was awarded to Helen Rye and Zeus Sumra. The winners were announced at an awards ceremony hosted by Bristol Central Library. More soon….




Dizz’s winning story and the other 19 on the shortlist are now available in our brilliant new anthology which can be ordered from our publisher, Tangent Books. It will also be available to order from bookshops and the usual online outlets shortly.
