SpecFicNZ runs frequent writing contests, open to our members as well as the public at large.

These contests are intended to encourage our members to improve their skills and professionalism, try something new, practise submitting, and to promote their wonderful work. And, of course, there are prizes.

SpecFicNZ are planning to produce a collection of work every year, including winning competition entries and selected reprints from members covering both fiction and non-fiction articles. Stay tuned for more details.

Competitions that will be run in 2016/2017 include:

Flash Fiction / Poetry Competition (closes October 24th 2016)


2017 Science Fiction and Fantasy Short Story Award  – In association with LexiCon, the 37th New Zealand NatCon (Queens Birthday Weekend, 2017)

If you have any ideas for competitions you would like us to run in the future, or if you would like to run a competition in partnership with SpecFicNZ, please let us know at specficnz(at)gmail(dot)com.
