Competition winner announced
The First Person Fortnight competition was a huge success, we had more entries than I even imagined! Before I tell you the winners, I want to thank the judges for all their hard work. Remember that every submitted story had to be read by our special ninja judges, then critiqued and scored to find the best story!
If you’re desperate to know the winner, you can scroll to the bottom but first I want to credit the judges for all their hard work, they were:
- Rich LeValley from Star Trek Borderlands
- Chas Hammer from Simming League
- Jenn Brown from Derby Scribes
- FSF Margo from the Federation Sim Fleet
- Iz Stuart from What will be, will be on OngoingWorlds
- Marissa Jeffrey from Starbase 118
- And me, David from OngoingWorlds
I wanted this competition to be as fair as possible which is why I picked judges from all across the board!
The runners up
In descending order, these are the three runners up. I’ll be posting these stories here on the blog soon too. All judges told me it was really difficult picking a winner.
3rd place – Last Rites by Mark Vorenkamp
Can you please imagine a drumroll in your head when you read this for dramatic effect?
The winner was the story Not All Bad Out Here written by Aimee Shields Yankowski.
I’ll be making contact with Aimee, and sending her the prize, this lovely one-of-a-kind First Person Fortnight coffee mug! Aimee, I hope you think of it as a trophy when you’re using it to drink hot beverages. Or soup. Or cold drinks. I just hope you’re proud!
