The Perito Prize - Short Fiction Contest

The Perito Prize is an international, annual, short fiction competition run by CIEDA C.I.C now - thanks to our friends at Perito for handing over the reins of this great competition and to every who has entered and been a part of the journey so far!

2019 celebrated the first year of the Perito Prize with a wide selection of high quality stories from writers of all ages, based all over the world. The Prize was created to get people thinking in different ways about inclusive environments, inclusion, diversity, accessibility and inclusive design!

For some people this conjures up thoughts of wheelchairs, hearing aids, and guide dogs, but we see the simple concept that all people should be able to contribute, participate, engage and have access to the world we all live in. Issues with access to spaces, social exclusion, lack of opportunity and different experiences can happen to anyone at any time — whether social, environmental, technological, physical, mobility impairment or injury, mental health, or less visible neuro-cognitive conditions.

Firstly, don’t start worrying about whether what you’re going to do is right or good enough. Save that sort of stuff for later. What we are primarily interested in is understanding what inclusive environments, accessibility and inclusive design means to you.

Spelling and grammar isn’t as important as the story and the way you tell it.

You’re going to bring your story to life us by writing it down, making an audio recording (a mini audio book) or let us know if you would like to use some other way to tell your story. It will need to comply with the rules of entry.

It has to be of your own creation and make sure it hasn’t been published anywhere before.

Your story must be told in English and include a written transcript to show it meets the word count limits.

Deadline: October 02
