How long or short a ‘short story’ needs to be will vary depending upon the competition. The same will also apply to ‘Flash Fiction’ which can be only an absolute bare minimum of words.  Some time ago I investigated an American website and these were their rules;

Fifty –five words or less
A setting
One or more characters
Some conflict
A resolution

The title is not included in the word count but no longer than seven words.
