And yes, thanks to the judges.
It must have been hard to shortlist 39 entries.

Whoo -hoo - go Rohi, Sio and any other MWC members that made it but I failed to recognise by their real name. :D :D :D :D :D :D


Dum dum dum . . . now to the hard cut.

Hi again

Congrats to everyone from MWC who made the shortlist, I'm delighted that so many of you entered.

My judging panel for the second round consists of eight judges and they are already on the case.

I have asked for their responses by 12 noon (UK time) on Sunday, and will be announcing the winners on Sunday late afternoon/evening in a series of blog posts.

Rohi, it's actually the original judges plus some new ones. So eight in all. But still, I wanted to get a good mixture as judging things like this is very much about personal taste.

Hey everyone, thanks for the congratulations Nick, like Rohi and Siobhan I was delighted to be included in the shortlist, I can see the two joint 5th place stories are published now - and are of an amazing standard. For me this was about a chance to give flash fiction a go, which I hadn't done before, I enjoyed it and the fact that I was shortlisted was a brilliant surprise. I'm very thankful to you Rebecca for this prompt which has boosted my confidence no end. x

Hi Rebecca,
These are joint fifth!
I can't wait to read the ones who have been rated higher than these.
Let the music play on...

Yes, great idea to have readers as judges.
On the whole, you've organized this contest exceptionally well.
I do hope you organize more of them in future
