Gibraltar Cultural Services on behalf of the Ministry of Culture in collaboration with the Gibraltar Tourist Board will be offering the winners of this year’s short story competition an opportunity to be involved in the Gibunco Gibraltar International Literary Festival.

The winners in each category will receive an access pass to all of the talks and events (two tickets per winner). The main winner will additionally have access to the Festival’s Green Room.

The move aims to encourage further interest in literature and writing, giving local writers an opportunity to learn from those involved in the field. Organisers are confident it will be an added incentive for those participating, and in line with our Cultural Development programme of continuous learning and growth.

The Short Story competition has attracted around 350 entries with the winners expected to be announced in June.
