Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve gone straight to the answers!

  • If you are not able to download the submission form, you can ask us to e-mail you a copy by writing to our Editor at
  • You can write as many articles as you like, as long as you do not answer a topic more than once.
  • An article can be written by two or more people. We need a submission form for each author.
  • You can participate in the competition for an older age category, but not the reverse. For example, if you are 16, you can participate in the Adult category, but you cannot take part in the Young Writers category.
  • Articles submitted to the prize cannot be published elsewhere, either before or after the competition has taken place. Please instead link to your article on our site from your page!
  • Articles sent on the day of the deadline will still be entered into the prize, although they will be published after the deadline. Our team will be working hard to get everything online for two weeks after the deadline – please only email us if you haven’t received receipt of your article!
