The Adas 2019

We are thrilled to announce the Ada Cambridge Writing Prizes 2019 open for submissions!

The Ada Cambridge writing prizes have given emerging writers from Melbourne’s western suburbs a wonderful opportunity to have their work published (many for the first time) and now we want to give more writers that same opportunity.

For the first time, we will be opening submissions for prose and poetry to all writers who live in Victoria.

The Young Ada Short Story Prize will remain open to writers aged 14 to 18 years of age, who live, study or work in Melbourne’s western suburbs.

Information on on how to enter is included in our entry guidelines on our Ada Cambridge Prizes writing page for each prize. Please read the entry guidelines carefully, as conditions have changed.

Ada Cambridge Biographical Prose Prize submissions close: Monday 11 March 2019

Ada Cambridge Poetry Prize submissions close: Monday 11 March 2019

Young Adas Short Story prize submissions close: Monday 25 March 2019.
