Entrants must write either a short poem or piece of prose, of no more than about 1,000 words, that is inspired by one of the works in the NGS collection (at the Royal Scottish Academy, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Paxton House, Duff House or the Dean Gallery).
