The mission of the Bridport Prize is to encourage emerging writers and promote literary excellence through its competition structure.
The Bridport Prize was founded by Bridport Arts Centre in 1973 and has steadily grown in stature and prestige. Right from the start the competition attracted entries from all parts of the UK and from overseas.
All entries submitted can be on any subject, and written in any style or form. However, we do not recommend poems or stories written for children.
