The winner will receive £1,000, publication on the Guardian's website and a one-day publishing workshop at 4th Estate

The competition is for original, unpublished short stories by black, Asian and minority ethnic writers in the UK.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.

For full details see the website.
