We are happy to announce that we have recieved the following adjudication from our judge Mike Jenkins . Diolch Mike and congratulations to our winner Branden Kang.
I've read these through very carefully. The best yet in terms of standard and very hard to choose.
I liked a lot of them, especially Perils of Fabrication, The Green Mile, Marionettes, Grampy Spinelli's Story, Parallel Perspectives and The Squirrel Killer.
In the end I went for Daddy Manual by Branden Kang.....caught the child's viewpoint superbly and was so emotive without ever lapsing into sentimentality. I was moved to tears at the end and that rarely happens reading fiction.
Congratulations to all of them on the finest set of entries by a long way!
