Winners of the 2019 Christmas story challengeWe received 19 entries for the extraordinary Christmas short story writing challenge. Compared to entries for previous contests, though, we were a tad disappointed that many of the entries were not as creative and out of the ordinary as expected. We thought that perhaps the choice of the pairs of selected words was difficult to incorporate in a story. Was that the case?
Update of the winners' names (17th Jan.) - The three winners of the challenge are Anamika Raj, Aditya Mohan, and Saji Ganesh. Each of them will receive a cash award of Rs.100/- and will be rewarded with 100 points as well, as announced.
Congratulations to the winners! We will give some points and cc to all the other participants as well, as per the assessment of the jury panel, which has decided that, in the spirit of Christmas, even invalid entries will be given some minimum cc. Many thanks to everyone for the superb response to the contest.
