Perito Prize For Short Fiction 2022

Perito Prize

The Perito Prize is an international, annual, short fiction competition organized by Perito Ltd.

According to the organizers, below are the ideas behind the literary prize:

2019 celebrated the first year of the Perito Prize with a wide selection of high quality stories from writers of all ages, based all over the world. The Prize was created to get people thinking in different ways about inclusive environments, inclusion, diversity, accessibility and inclusive design!

For some people this conjures up thoughts of wheelchairs, hearing aids, and guide dogs, but we see the simple concept that all people should be able to contribute, participate, engage and have access to the world we all live in. Issues with access to spaces, social exclusion, lack of opportunity and different experiences can happen to anyone at any time - whether social, environmental, technological, physical, mobility impairment or injury, mental health, or less visible neuro-cognitive conditions.

We think there are so many great stories out there to celebrate the diverse world we live in. We want to hear them and share them so both our writers and readers start to try and think, analyse and design for inclusive environments in absolutely every we do.

Prize For The Perito Prize For Short Fiction

First Prize is a cash prize of £500 and the story will be uploaded to the Perito Prize section of the Perito Ltd website. You should be OK with participating in the Anthology and ideally with the podcasting and other items on the Perito website and social media and other related promotional activities.

Second and Third Prize is a special mention and the stories uploaded to the Perito Prize section of the Perito Ltd website as well as inclusion into the Anthology and the option to participate in the podcast/readings and other social media.

The Perito Prize Anthology is a printed and published collection of the best stories from each year. The book will be available to buy from Amazon (published via KDP at the moment) and all profits will be donated to an access and inclusion charity highlighted on the blog section of the website each year.
