Griffith Review announces Long and the Short of It competition winners

Griffith Review has announced the recipients of its inaugural emerging voices writing competition.

The four winning writers share in $15,000, courtesy of the Copyright Agency’s cultural fund. The winners are:

  • Declan Fry, ‘Americano Sal’
  • Alison Gibbs, ‘Emily Presents’
  • Vijay Khurana, ‘The Menaced Assassin’
  • Andrew Roff, ‘Camelopard’.

The winning pieces will be published in a forthcoming issue of Griffith Review in November 2021. The inaugural competition was judged by publishers Rachel Bin Salleh from Magabala Books, Aviva Tuffield from UQP and Robert Watkins from Ultimo Press, as well as by Griffith Review’s editorial staff.

Open to early-career writers, the Long and Short of It competition was announced earlier this year and called for submissions of fiction and nonfiction that reflects ‘new ideas, fresh voices and bold perspectives’. The winners were chosen from a longlist of 14 announced last week.
