Please send an entry sheet with your details and then email this and your entry to This helps us to judge anonymously and impartially, which is fairer to everyone. If you would like to use the entry sheet we’ve designed (it’s not compulsory, just useful, and you won’t lose the competition because you’ve done your own), you can find a copy here (Word document, 46KB). If you do your own, please include the same relevant information.

We are contributors to Brighton’s Coastway Hospital Radio, and winning entrants have the chance to have their story recorded and read out on air. You can do the recording yourself, or have someone else do it for you. We have several presenters who are versed in this kind of thing. Any recording is free and in addition to any other prize. However, do not guarantee that winning stories will be recorded, as we have to abide by the rules of broadcast radio. So a winning entry may be ineligible for broadcast due to language or content. Yes it’s Nanny State, but we’re bound by the rules.

Please note that we don’t offer travel or accommodation costs, so if you’re coming from Australia, The Orkneys or just around the corner and you don’t have your own magic carpet, don’t ask us to fund your first class travel!
