Unpublished essays of 1,000 words or more on any topic of local history can be entered. They can be the memories of the writer, or others, or original research about people, places or events east of the River Itchen.

Entrants must be over 14 years old and entries accompanied by an entry form, available here along with the rules.

The closing date is July 31, 2017, and the cup and a prize of £30 will be presented in September.

Help us do more in 2018!
