Umeå Short Story Award

The Umeå Short Story Award was started in 2007 as part of Umeå’s candidacy for European Capital of Culture and the annual competition acquired national status in Sweden, it became the biggest of its kind in the country. Anyone writing in the Swedish language was invited to participate in the competition. The intention was to create a new forum for the Swedish short story and to strengthen Västerbotten’s position as the storytelling county. The city library has been in charge of the competition and the winner was awarded at the anual Littfest in Umeå. Furhermore, the best short stories taking part, was published in a special anthology.
