Launching the EFC Short Story Contest

July 10 2020

Estonian Foundation of Canada is launching a short story contest for the whole community. As we all find ourselves without our usual routines, EFC invites you to use this unique time to find some inspiration and be creative – in fact you can even write about it!

The Challenge: Write a short fiction or non-fiction piece on any topic with a tangible connection to the Estonian-Canadian experience. Maximum 1500 words. In English or Estonian.

Works should be previously unpublished. 

Deadline: Thursday, December 31, 2020, midnight ET

Judging: A panel of 3 judges with writing experience, in consultation with representative(s) from the EFC Board, will select winners and up to 3 honourable mentions in the following categories:

  1. Children (high school age and younger)
  2. Young writers (under 25 years of age as of December 31, 2020)
  3. Adult authors (Age 25+)

Prizes: $500 for the Grand prize winner, with cash prizes for winners in each age category. Honourable mentions will also be awarded at the discretion of the judges, depending on the number of entries.
