Free Sports Writing Competitions

We are looking for the best sports writers to send us exciting, original, even abstract sports writing to help add zest and vigour to the genre. We had a great mix of fiction and non-fiction entries for the 2011 competition (read the full Winning Entries here), so you’ll need to give it your best shot to have a chance of winning in 2012.

The contest is open to entrants of 18 years and older. The entries may be prose or poetry, fiction or non-fiction. You may write about any subject … as along as it relates to sport. Any sport. We didn’t get any entries about synchronised swimming last time, so maybe this time. The three winning entries from the last competition were about football, golf and darts, but really we don’t have a preference.

Entries may be anything up to 1500 words and must be written in English. Please read the full FBFT Sports Writing Competition Terms and Conditions before entering. The closing date for entries is the final day of the 2011/12 Premier League football season (date to be confirmed this week by the Premier League).

Now, to the prizes:
First Prize: £50
Second Prize: £30
Third Prize: £20

The three winning entries will also be published on our website.

All entries must be received by midnight on the published closing date of the last day of the 2011/12 Premier League football season. Late entries will be deleted.
