We were very honoured to have Alex Wheatle as our judge. He said:

"I had to read the short list three times because it's so difficult picking a winner! 

I chose 'Flapjack' as the winner.  It was an original piece of writing and I loved the author's brave approach to a very difficult subject matter. 

'Colours Fade to Black and White' came in second place. I loved the young narrator's voice and the author created some wonderful characters in this short piece.

In third place was 'Tingalay-o' - the prose in this short story's opening is stunning and throughout the piece.  I loved the style of writing and was moved by the end."
