Young Post's 2012 Summer Story competition is here again to let your imagination run free. Whether it is a great adventure, a strange encounter or a mystical journey - start writing it.

This year's theme is: 'I should've listened to my friend.' Remember, you don't have to limit your storyline to summer holidays. Your work must be between 1,800 and 2,000 words, and set in Hong Kong.

Every Saturday from July to August, fiction by eight finalists chosen by our judge will be published with illustrations by our artists. All finalists will receive a certificate from Young Post.

The best three entries will split HK$3,000 worth of Dymocks vouchers. The overall winner will be interviewed by Young Post and featured on our cover.

Send your original, captivating entries to by June 22 with 'Summer Fiction' in the subject field. Include your name, age, school, phone number and a Jpeg headshot of yourself, which will be published with your story if selected.

This contest is not open to South China Morning Post staff or their families.
