We are sorry if your story wasn’t shortlisted but it doesn’t mean that you scored badly. Some of the marks were extremely close, sometimes with only one point between stories.

Thank you to everybody who entered.  There are no plans as yet for a competition in 2016 but that may change so watch this space.
