Former school principal and chief judge Lloyd Hogg said that with prize money of $1100, the competition will draw entries from all over Australia.

“We have emailed over 100 writers’ groups in all states and with exposure in the three NOTA editions we expect that many local creative writers will be submitting entries,” he said.

“It costs just $10 to enter one story and $5 for each additional submission,” he added.

“There is a limit of 2000 words and writers can send in stories on any topic.”

Full details of prize money and entry conditions can be found on by clicking on ‘Literature Award’ in the left hand green sidebar. Or simply go to the News Of The Area website and follow the links.

Entries close 30 September and results will be announced in November on a date to be advised.
