The Mogford Prize For Drink&Wine Writing
The Mogford Prize is an annual short story writing competition founded by Jeremy Mogford, owner of The Oxford Collection.
In 2013, he established the prize to honour the arts and his long-standing connection to literary Oxford. J. Mogford, the founder of The Oxford Collection, has a long history of success in the hospitality industry and decided that his competition would focus on food, drink, or both. The grand prize is £10,000. Each of the three runners-up receives £250. An actor reads the winning entry, which is then uploaded to the Storyplayer website.
What Stories Are Chosen?
The Mogford Prize is a prestigious international award for short stories that deal with food and/or alcohol.
As a result, we're only looking for short stories about food and/or drink. For example, the story could be about a food-related crime or mystery; a chance meeting over a drink; a life-changing dinner conversation; or the details of a relationship as revealed through food. While there are no genre restrictions, we are looking for fiction that will appeal to The Oxford Collection's visitors.
