ASFF Short Story Competition

The Australian Science Fiction Foundation believes in encouraging creative writing in Australia.


We want to support our young writers and enable them to participate in a competition that unlocks their full creative potential. 

The ASFF is thrilled to announce the launch of a new creative writing competition for

Primary and Secondary Students in Australia in which their

stories are only limited by their imaginations.

Theme : Imagine.

Students are invited to write a story in which their imagination explores the future here on Earth, or somewhere beyond our solar system. Students are encouraged to write imaginatively,

whilst exploring their ideas within a science fiction genre.

The Administrator for this competition is Juliette Cavendish, President of the ASFF.

The inaugural 'ASFF Short Story Competition' will start accepting

entries on January 1st, 2023 with the winners being showcased on our website.


A digital anthology will be made of the best entries.

More details of the rules and regulations for the competition will be released on

January 1st 2023.
