Everyone wants to win the Bridport Prize.   To realise that you’ve been made it through all the readers and judging rounds and come out on top is a real boost.  As writers, we spend so much time wondering if we’re any good and being rejected.  Getting somewhere in the Bridport Prize (anywhere) keeps us going and makes it all worthwhile.
