The Social Fiction Competition is looking for innovative social fiction that will open minds to give a fresh viewpoint on operating in a transformative, sustainable and equitable world. Social Fiction links to creating ideas, thoughts or processes that impact the social context. If we start thinking about social fiction, like science fiction, we will trigger social innovation to help us build the society and community we want to live in. If we imagine it, one day, reality will follow. It is an excellent opportunity for young people and students. Participants can come up with fictional ideas to resolve real-world social problems. Competitions will encourage students to think creatively, innovate, and develop an entrepreneurial perspective that leads to long-term solutions to real-world problems, thus empowering future citizens.
Fiction reveals the truth that reality obscures. Submit your writing proposal for creating the world you want to live in and get a chance to win the whopping prize of $10,000! Participants will get a platform that stimulates social innovation by enabling the creative expression of fictional solutions by participating in competitions.
