The competition is for original, unpublished short stories by black, Asian and minority ethnic writers in the UK. Last year's winner was Yiming Ma for Swimmer of Yangtze. He said: 'Generosity, in these challenging political times, becomes especially precious. I feel grateful to 4th Estate for nurturing my story Swimmer of Yangtze, believing in the voices of minority writers and giving us a platform to share our untold stories’

Writers entering the competition should not have a publishing contract or be represented by a literary agent. Enter stories up to 6,000 words by the closing date of 7 June.
