A short story competition open to
Nearly 200 Māori writers have emerged through the Pikihuia short story competition, a competition that has firmly cemented a place in the literary calendar of Aotearoa.
The Pikihuia Awards has long championed new and emerging talent, serving as a springboard for the next generation of Māori writers.
Past winners of the Pikihuia Awards have included acclaimed writers – Paula Morris, James George, Kelly Ana Morey, Tina Makereti, Whiti Hereaka, Steph Matuku, Shilo Kino – and the list grows.
Pikihuia is held every two years and is open to all Māori writers.
