Competition Rules

  • Competitions are open to anyone of any age who has access to a mobile phone serviced by a UK mobile network provider

  • Entries must be the original work of the entrant and must not have previously published or broadcast nor simultaneously entered for another competition

  • Entry is free except for the cost of a standard text message for each entry, as billed by your mobile phone service provider. This may be part of a payment package which includes a specified number of text messages. Failure to seek the bill payers permission will invalidate the entry

  • There is no limit to the number of entries that anyone can make for a competition

  • Competitions will run monthly and will begin as soon as they are announced in the month of the competition. Usually early on the first day of the month. Competitions close at midnight on the last day of the month of competition

  • Competitions can only be entered from a mobile phone by texting the entry to 07537 432 432

  • Entries for competitions can be no longer than 160 characters including spaces, punctuation and carriage returns

  • At the moment we cannot offer a prize for the winner. We're working on this however

  • Results will be published on the Txtlit website as soon as possible after the close of the competition. Winners will be notified via their mobile phone

  • Copyright remains with the author, however, by entering the competition you give permission for your entry to be published on the Txtlit website and to appear without payment in any publicity material for or in any future publications compiled and sold by or its associated companies. In such circumstances every effort will be made to see that the author is credited for their work

  • The judge's decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into

  • Submission of entries will indicate acceptance of the rules and conditions

We're not running competitions at the moment

Changes in regulations to both Data Protection and how premium rate SMS numbers are charged came in quick succession and have made it difficult for us to continue with Txtlit.

We would like to think that we will be able to resurrect Txtlit at some stage but running the competitions calls for the commitment of a lot of time and without being able to charge for entries means that we would be doing so at a loss.

We’re passionate about the concept of Txtlit but it’s difficult to justify operating it at present.

We hope to find a workable solution at some stage and bring Txtlit back.
