If you're looking for online contests that you can participate or submit your work for free, without being required to pay entry free; don't look further.

This article will provide you with an overview of each contest including the last date to submit your work and the type of prizes to be won. A link has been included in each contest which will direct you to the relevant contest's page to better understand what's required of you.

However, unlike earlier, this article will concentrate on writing contests only, that is, short story, novel, flash fiction, poetry, article, essay and creative nonfiction. For non-writing contests - designing, illustration, drawing, painting, photography and short video/film production - a separate article has been created to provide you with an up-to-date list of the said contests.

Click here to be directed to non-writing contests.

Cheers on your success. If you don't win, don't beat yourself down. Try another one, and another one, and another one. You never know.

NOTE: Unless otherwise stated, the entries should be submitted in English language. Whereas a language(s) is accepted other than English, it will be noted in the concerned contest.

      @nyi, postal code refers to sending mail through postal mail. This is when you take the envelope containing a letter or whatever is in the envelope to the post office so that they can send it to the intended person.

      मुझे आपकी टिप्पणी को पढ़ने में सक्षम होने के लिए Google अनुवाद का उपयोग करना था जो कि हिंदी में है। इस प्रकार, मैंने उसी कार्यक्रम पर भरोसा किया है। मुझे आशा है कि इसका अनुवाद अभीष्ट है।

      Yes, Tricia. There are contests for people under the age of 18. I will be indicating the minimum age so as to know right away if you're eligible. Therefore, keep checking.

      Saeed, many countries have no writing or online contests as is your case.

      The contests listed in this page are free to enter and any individual from any part of the world can participate including you from Iran. If a contest is limited to a particular country it will be indicated. Feel free to enter:)

      Hussein, these contests are free to enter. There is no fee to enter.

      XYZ, the prizes and payment depend with an organization and how much money they can afford to pay winners.

      Hi Eli

      You are not seeing things. When the duration of a contest expires, I remove the outdated contest to make room for new ones. This, is to avoid browsing through a long list of contests, both the active and non-active. This applied to the missing contest which you saw but is no longer visible.

      HI there. I visited this page a couple days ago and I think there was an essay contest about "How I plan on spending summer vacation" but I no longer see it on this page. Am I seeing things or did something change? Thanks.
