We invite submissions for the Most Compelling Article category. This is open to non-fiction articles from the general public, which we have not solicited.

This section will be judged by internationally renowned and multi-award-winning Australian journalist, John Pilger.


We also invite writers of fiction and poetry to send us an enthralling short story or poem, featuring a current affairs or social element.

This category will be judged by Australian theatre and film producer and former Sydney Writers' Festival CEO and director of Adelaide Writers' Week, Jo Dyer.
