To celebrate the launch of their new European Breakdown Cover, the RAC are running a 1000 word short story competition based on the theme of driving in Europe.
First prize is £500 and free RAC 5* European Breakdown Cover for a year (which, let's face it, could be handy if you hit a dead wild boar in Italy, for example). Plus, you’ll also have your story published in the RAC’s online club magazine.
Two runners up will be awarded £100 M&S vouchers and – now here’s the catch –‘all shortlisted entries have the chance to be published on our website’ (But, to be fair, that sounds like you might have the choice! I will email them and ask the question).
There’s a 1,000-word limit and "it must follow a short story narrative, rather than just accounts of a driving holiday abroad. And if the story includes the UK it must also include one or more other countries or regions of the EU."
The rest of the rules and details of the competition are here.
