The Italian National Olympic Committee renews its cultural tradition with the issue of an announcement of the XLVIII Literary Contest and the XLIII Sport Story Contest. The oldest Competition, which over the years has contributed to the literary production of sport content and gave a new boost to specialised studies in the field of sport, offers the possibility to Italian authors to participate, by 15 April, with works edited in 2013 in three sections: 1) Fiction - books of poems, novels or collections of short stories of pure creation with sport as a topic, 2) Non-Fiction - monographs, historical-literary studies, biographies and alike, always with sport as a topic, and 3) Technical - specialised studies in the field of sports.
The Sport Story aims to promote and disseminate a narrative genre always very widespread. Those who published a text in 2013 and who have created an original work will also be able to submit their story, following the announcement guidelines, no later than 15 April. After the success of previous editions, the presence of the "Under 18" prize, which recognises the best sport story written by a young person born after 1 January 1996, has been confirmed.
