Flash Fiction (French & Spanish)


Oxford University


31st March 2019

Additional information:

The Oxford University Flash Fiction Competitions in French and Spanish are now open for submissions.

Students are invited to submit a short story of 100 words or fewer on a topic of their choosing. The story should be written in French or Spanish. There are two categories of entry per language: one for students in Years 7-11, and another for students in Years 12-13.

Entries will be judged on imagination and creativity, as well as linguistic ability. Use of French / Spanish will be considered in the context of age and year group: in other words, we will not expect younger students to compete against older pupils linguistically.

The judges will award a top prize of £100 in each category, as well as prizes of £25 to a number of runners up.

If you have any questions, please email us at schools.liaison@mod-langs.ox.ac.uk. Entries should be submitted through our online portal. Students are allowed to submit a story in each language but can only submit one story per language. The deadline for submitting is noon on Sunday 31 March 2019. More details are available here, and the submission page is here (French) and here (Spanish).
