$20,000 Writing Contest from The Alpine Foundation

The Alpine Foundation is currently hosting a free writing contest – open to writers from around the world who are at least 18 years old.

This year’s prize is centered on the theme “Untamed: On Wilderness and Civilization.”

Entries are allowed in all genres of writing: poetry, fiction, non-fiction, etc. Writers entering the contest can be from any nationality, but they must be 18 or older.

The word limit is 2500 words.

Every entry will be judged anonymously.

According to their website:

Does the wild stand in opposition to civilisation, or are they both manifestations of the natural? Is our conception of the wild anthropic, indeed is it sentimental? When is it right to ‘live according to nature’, and when should we turn to science to rewire nature or ourselves? Indeed, what is our ‘natural’ state? And following a year in which so much interaction has been online, we ask how it affects this theme?

The deadline for entries is April 1st, 2021.
