Harry Styles: A Competition

A Harry Styles Writing Competition!

Write in celebration of this musician's new single and win a free month of Spotify



On April 7th Harry Styles released his single "Sign of the Times." It is his first solo single and we're so excited about it that in celebration we're focusing on him in this new competition!


The rules are very simple. You have to write a fanfiction based on Harry Styles from the possiblities we mention below, or a regular story inspired by those same themes. It's up to you whether this will be romance, songfic, or even an alternate screenplay for the promo video, we want to inspire you just like Harry's single and the positive hype surrounding it inspired us :)



How to Participate​

The competition begins today, even though the single has only just been released today too. We have chosen to do it this way, and think of all the possibilities you could write about without even having heard the song?! And now you get to decide if you're going to spend your weekend listening to the single or writing, we're hoping it's the latter ;)


You have six weeks to write/design your entry. Your contribution may be a poem, a oneshot, a longer story, a fanfiction, etc. just please choose one of the following options to focus on:


  • Write a fanfiction involving Harry Styles. You can choose to add your own characters to it as well, and it can be any kind of fanfiction. Harry doesn't have to be the main character, he just has to be in it.
  • Write a story or fanfic inspired by the title of the new single, "Sign of the Times." When you have heard the song, you can be inspired by that as well, but there's power in just those words.
  • Write a fanfic or regular story inspired by the promo video or its theme of 'emerging from the shadows'...



More interested in creating your own cover, trailer, or fanart?
You may also do that, just be sure to state "Cover," "Trailer," or "Fanart" in the title of your entry so that it's clear. An alternate album cover sounds like something we'd love to see, as you all are often more creative than an entire design team!




We will choose three winners total.


Best Fanfiction/Story and the Runner Up will each receive a giftcard for 1 month of Spotify!


Best Visual (cover/trailer/fanart) will receive a Spotify giftcard for the same amount of time.


Then you can listen to Harry's new song a lot more! If you already have a Spotify account, you'll be able to redeem the code we'll send as your prize and get a month for free!


Are you looking forward to hearing 5 minutes of just Harry's voice? Let us know in the comments! 


Also, here's an overview of of when the single will be released according to your time zone.
