The Dorset Award

The Dorset Award was established in 2007 to recognise the achievement of the writer from Dorset placed highest in the competition. It can be awarded across any of the four competition categories.

In 2017, the Award was presented to Terry Warren from Bridport for his flash fiction story 'Buttercups'. Terry also took the 1st prize in the Flash Fiction competition.

The Award is generously sponsored by The Book Shop, Bridport's independent book store and we thank them for their ongoing support.

“It has been a great opportunity to participate in the Bridport Prize and to find myself swimming in the company of those with such wonderful imagining, poignancy and wording”.
