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!
