A Theme

You can imagine an invention and inventor story based on the theme: “Obsession invention”.

Of the imagination

It is up to you to stage, in your own way, in the form you wish, a story inspired by this theme. Your freedom is total… with only one constraint: an economy of words! The text must be less than 8000 characters long in order to be distributed by the Distributors of Short Stories.

Feathers from all walks of life

You can choose between two categories of participation: the Yep’s category if you are between 15 and 25 years old and live in the Centre-Val de Loire region (Yep’s is the name of the youth pass in the Centre-Val de Loire), or the General Public category, open to all ages and all regions.

Only one work may be submitted per writer.

You have until May 20 to submit it online (new window).

Several awards

At the end of the competition, two juries will be assembled to select the winners. Several prizes are at stake, including hot air balloon flights and concert tickets. Other surprises await you.
