Opens 2nd July at 2pm GMT
Closes 13th August 12 NOON GMT (Irish Time) 

The Institute of Technology, Tallaght [Dublin, Ireland] in association with the Red Line Book Festival and South Dublin County Council, are pleased to announce the opening of the

ITT Short Story Competition 2018 for entries. Entry is free.

Competition Details:

The ITT Short Story Competition is run by the Institute of Technology Tallaght, in conjunction with South Dublin County Council, and in association with the Red Line Book Festival, and is free to enter.
This year’s judge is Deirdre Sullivan, an award winning writer for young adults. Her most recent book, Tangleweed and Brine, is a collection of Fairy-Tale re-tellings. She tweets and instagrams @propermiss.

Entries should be submitted via the official online form only, between 14:00 (GMT) on July 2nd 2018 until 12.00 GMT (Irish Time), on August 13th 2018.

Entries must be in short story format (a short work of fiction) between 1,500 and 2,000 words long, and should be completely the entrant's own work written in English (high standard), original, unpublished. There is no restriction on theme or style, however the planned 2018 anthology will be called Stand Fast! and we are looking for strong stories that (even loosely) reflect this title. Falsification of information and/or identity, plagiarism, racial discrimination and bigotry will see entries disqualified.
The judges' decision is final. No correspondence will be entered into. No criticism or advice will be provided.

Contest Prizes:
1. First Prize:       €500
2. Second Prize:  €250
3. Third Prize:     €150

It is the intention of the organisers that the winning and short listed entries may be published in an anthology, or other format. Non-prize winning published entries will receive no remuneration. Previous year’s Anthologies are available on Amazon.

You must read the Rules, and Terms and Conditions and agree to these before you can submit your entry.
Queries before submission should only relate to the contest rules or if there are difficulties in submission. Queries should be sent via e-mail to
