Read the following guidelines carefully before submitting for the CUPPS Prize 2020
The guidelines are as follows:
You must be a student of the University of Cambridge.
All entries must be received by midnight BST 14th February 2021. Late entries will not be accepted.
All entries must be submitted to the provided email address, firstname.lastname@example.org
All entries must be submitted as PDF documents. A separate PDF document must be submitted with a short bio and your name. You must also attach a copy of the receipt or payment confirmation for your submission (e.g. a screenshot of the email) showing ID (your name/ order no.) and recipient (CUPPS).
All poems must have a title and must not exceed 40 lines in length (excluding title). Entries can be on any subject.
All prose entries must have a title and must not exceed 10,000 words in length (excluding title). Entries can be on any subject. Entries may be extracts from a novel or novella, or may be short stories.
Individuals may enter up to 3 entries per category. The cost of entering a category is £5, and therefore if you wish to submit to both categories then the entry fee will be £10. These payments must be made using the PayPal shop on the CUPPS website.
Entries must be the original work of the author and we will run checks for plagiarism.
Entries may be published previously (e.g. on a personal blog) but cannot have won any other competition.
Entries must be written in English but you can include phrases in another language.
All entries are judged anonymously, and the writer’s name must not appear anywhere on the work itself.
There will be one winner for each category (poetry and prose) eligible to receive a sum of £100, and one runner-up, eligible to receive £25.
