An Increase in the Flash Fiction Prize Money for 2014
As so many of our judges have commented on how difficult it is to decide on the final placings for the top three, we have decided to increase the second and third prize payouts to reflect the high standard of the work reaching those places.
Starting from the first quarter 2014, the prizes for the flash fiction category will be as follows: First £300, Second £200 and Third £100. This is an overall increase of £150 to the total payout each quarter.
