Mountaineering Scotland Writing Competition 2024

The Cairngorms: always inspirational

Mountaineering Scotland's Mountain Writing Competition returns with new prizes and a youth category. This year I am one of the judges and I'm greatly looking forward to reading the entries. The standard has always been high and I've been impressed by the winning entries I've read (they're published in Scottish Mountaineer Magazine and online). So please get writing so I can enjoy your work!

In a press release Mountaineering Scotland says "the Mountaineering Scotland Mountain Writing Competition is open to anyone living in the UK, and entries can be fact or fiction, just so long as the subject matter has a connection with the mountains/ any aspect of mountaineering, rock climbing, walking, trail running or skiing/ski-touring. The competition is open to both Mountaineering Scotland members and non-members".

Entries for the 2024 Mountaineering Scotland Mountain Writing competition are open from 9am on 18th January and close at 5pm on 1st March 2024. Winners will be notified in April 2024.

Entries can be made through the online application portal, with an entry fee of £7.50 per entry (adults), per category, and £5 for the young poet category.
