Interregional Prize for Young Writers 2019: writing contest for young people aged 15 to 20



Interregional Prize for Young Writers 2019 (PIJA) is a writing contest in French language, open for young people aged 15 to 20. Every year, hundreds of young writers from all around the world take part in the contest, either in the “Native French” or the “French as a foreigh language” category.


Looking for new original voices, the PIJA supports the written expression and offers exposure to today’s literary youth.


In 2019, participants are given the possibility to explore every declination of prose: short story, tale, poetic prose, letter… Texts can be sent until 31 March 2019, either by post or online. A dotation of CH 9.000 will be allocated between the winners.

You can learn more on the PIJA on their website.


Don't miss this incredible opportunity!
