The Canal and River Trust is asking for 300 words of your experiences of being by water.
The Trust says: You could recall a peaceful stroll, reminisce about spotting wildlife on a boating holiday or spin a yarn about a fishing trip with an unexpected twist. The subject matter is endless – the only condition is that the piece must be inspired by a visit to river or canal cared for by the Trust.
The judge is poet and author Ian McMillan. The winning entries will be published on the Canal & River Trust website and the winners will receive personally signed copies of Stephen Fry’s books – The Ode, Paperweight and Mythos.
Closing date is 31st August 2020 and don’t forget to read the terms and conditions.

What a lovely idea for a comp. I’ve got something that might do, although I’m not sure about the rule: ‘All writing submitted into this competition may be used in promotions and advertising by the Canal & River Trust with or without credit to the author.’

I see what you mean about the rule, Julia. I haven’t been through the Ts & Cs with a tooth comb.
