FLF Wine Writers’ Prize 2014: Call for entries

It is with great pleasure that we send out the call for entries for the 2014 Franschhoek Literary Festival Wine Writers’ Prizes. Changes to the format of the awards now allows for prizes to be awarded in two categories, as well as a prize for the overall winner selected from the two category winners.

After receiving feedback from a number of people regarding the word count requirements for each of the two categories, the organisers have amended these to the following:

Short form: Up to 1000 words
Long form: 1000-4000 words

Please find a document outlining the criteria and rules with these changes, below.

By way of explanation of the long-form category: this was included to offer a new opportunity for those writers who wish to explore a wine topic in greater depth than is possible in shorter formats, in line with publishing opportunities created by new online sites such as and, along the lines of international publications and websites that publish longer pieces (some up to 15 000 words). As stated in the original release, for this category there is no pre-publication requirement.
