The planning is well underway for the 2018 Festival and as part of that, we wanted to give you the heads up about our two Festival competitions launching on January 8th 2018.

The Fowey Festival Awards for Young Writers and Artists 2018 will focus on ‘BIRDS’

Daphne du Maurier’s wonderful novel 'The Birds', written in 1952, was made into a film by Alfred Hitchcock and in 2018 will appear on the BBC as drama. For our 2018 competition, we are inviting young people to create their own original story, poem or work of art (picture or model) about ‘BIRDS’. The winner will be the 2018 Fowey Festival of Arts and Literature Young Writer or Young Artist of the Year.

Fowey Festival Adult Short Story Competition will be titled ‘DON’T LOOK NOW’

This competition is open to everyone over the age of 16. There will be a first prize of £100 and a second prize of £75. Get your pens (or typing fingers) out and start writing!

The closing date for both competitions is March 16th 2018, so there is plenty of time to get enthused and be creative.

Full details and entry forms will be available from 8th January 2018. You will be able to download the forms from this site. Prizes will be presented during the 2018 Festival.

We hope you can join us at the next festival, Saturday 12th- Saturday 19th May 2018.

With warm wishes,
