National Campus Writing Competition

Campus Writing Comp was launched in 2019, to celebrate the talents of student writers, regardless of their location of field of study.

Each year we give away thousands of dollars of prizes to talented students either through the Major Prizes, People’s Choice or monthly Instagram give-away’s – take a look at the overview of prizes below, but the full list of prizes and criteria are in the Terms of Entry.

Major Prizes – students have until 1st October to SUBMIT their entries to the Major Prizes. Submissions can be in the categories of Fiction or Non-Fiction and a panel of Industry-relevant Judges who will score the submissions. One submission from each of the two categories will be selected to receive the Major Prize valued at up to $1500 per category.

People’s Choice – one submission from each of the two Major Prize categories will receive the $250 People’s Choice prize for that category.  The recipient will be the submission with the highest recorded number of public votes as of midnight on 31 October.

Instagram Give-Away’s – we will be featuring a different theme for an Instagram give-away each month. Take a look at the themes below and check back to our NEWS page each month which will include all of the details you need to know about being in the running. We will send you shout-outs to remind you of deadlines in emails and on our social media. The hashtag to follow is #CampusWriting2021.
