Competition Guidelines

In-house Competition Entry Specifications


  1. Only one entry per author, per competition.
  1. All competition entries should be printed in 12 point Times New Roman in black ink on one side of A4 paper, double-spaced, with one-inch margins all round.
  1. Do not add extra space between paragraphs or different speeches in dialogue.
  2. Each page should be numbered, using the format ‘Page x of y’ i.e page 1 of 3, for example. It is helpful if the title of the story appears next to the page number. This can be at the top-right corner, or at the bottom of the page, separated from the main body of text by a blank line.
  1. Do not submit scripts which are over the word limit – or under, if a minimum is specified.

You should include a cover sheet giving:

  • Your name
  • Contact details such as phone number, email, and an address. This is so we can contact you if you win. Your details will not be passed to third parties.
  • The title of the story
  • The name of the competition
  • The word limit
  • The actual word count
