Today we've opened the portal for our 2017 flash contest, which runs until 31 July. If you read the February newsletter (or the December one), you'll have seen some examples of the flash we publish. If you're looking for a few other pointers though, you could take a look at our interview with Ingrid, this year's winner and a finalist in previous years, or you could take a look at the judges comments from a couple of years ago here, or what we learn from reading your flash about you.

Whatever you do, have fun, and we shall look forward to reading your entry. Competition details and the entry form are on this page.
