Enter our Summer Short Story Competition and become a published author

Our favourite entries will not only be published in our super Summer Holiday editions, they will also be compiled into a bound and illustrated book.

Young Post's Short Story Competition is back for the summer, so it's time to flex those creative muscles!

This year's theme is: 

The Test

You can interpret this however you want. Use your imagination! 


What you need to do:

  • Write a story that is 1,800-2,000 words long.
  • ​The story must be all your own work and set in Hong Kong.
  • On your story’s first page, write your name, age, school, and contact phone number.
  • Email yp@scmp.com with “The Test” in the subject field and attach your story and a jpg photo of yourself (we accept selfies!)

Our favourite entries will not only be published in our super Summer Holiday editions, they will also be compiled into a bound and illustrated book. Those selected entrants will each receive a copy of these books. (Yes, you will be a published author!)

The closing date is June 24.


Terms & Conditions

  • The contest is only open to secondary school students in Hong Kong.
  • The competition is not open to South China Morning Post staff or their families.
  • The judges’ decision is final.
