Closing date extended: Fundación César Egido Serrano VI International Flash Fiction Competition

“”The César Egido Serrano Foundation was created to propose that the word be the tool of coexistence between cultures and religions and against all violence.”

The closing date was originally 30 September 2021, but has now been extended, with the new date yet to be announced. The competition is open to writers from anywhere in the world over the age of 14 years. Two entries allowed per author, maximum 100 words per entry (not including an optional title), in either Spanish, English, Arabic or Hebrew. The competition slogan: “Faced with COVID; Solidarity and Resilience”.

More details, including information on previous editions, can be found here. Contest rules here. Find a participation form here. The language of the page can be changed to Spanish, Arabic or Hebrew from the list at the top-right.

This year sees a twist on the usual judging process: the participants will have the opportunity of helping select the winning stories through a computerised, random and anonymous voting system.

I’ve just sent off my two entries. Have you sent yours yet?

  1. Thank you for this post. I saw on the Foundation’s website that the contest deadline had been extended, but nowhere else has said f September 30 was the old or new date. I have already submitted one drabble and am trying to decide what to enter as the second.

    1. You’re welcome. Good luck with the story you’ve already submitted. Now you’ve got a bit of extra time to think about your second entry. As soon as I hear of the new closing date, I’ll update this post. But keep an eye on the Foundation’s website, too.

  2. This is a wonderful competition. And deadline extensions are always a welcome thing. But it’s great that you’ve already got your stories sent off, Barry. Good luck with them. Now you can move on to something else. Or take a break.


  3. Reblogged this on Elwood Writers and commented:
    Originally closing on 30 September, this international microfiction competition has extended its deadline, and is still accepting entries. Maximum two stories per entrant, 100 words per story. Give it a shot if you haven’t already.
