The sixth Reader's Digest 100-Word-Story competition is now closed. All votes have now been counted and the winners will be announced in our June issue.
The 100-Word-Story competition closed on the 20th February. It will reopen for its seventh year later in 2016, details will be coming in November. Eyes peeled!
In the meantime, here's a recap on the rules.
There are three categories—one for adults and two categories for schools: one for children aged 12–18 and one for children under 12.
Your stories should be original, unpublished and exactly 100 words long—not even a single word shorter or longer!
The editorial team will then pick a shortlist of three in each category and post them online on March 6.
You can vote for your favourite, and the one with the most votes will scoop the top prize. Voting will close on March 27 and winning entries will be published in our June issue.
Entry is open only to residents of the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and Republic of Ireland.
