Diwali Books - ebook contest winnersWe were delighted to see the smooth flow of the story in our ebook contest. Although only a couple of the authors touched upon the theme of the ebook, we have decided as an exception to go ahead with the prizes announced, due to it being for a festive occasion. Keeping in mind the theme of the contest and the usage of the word assigned as well as the overall content of the chapter, we have selected one clear winner. Then, keeping aside the theme, we considered other aspects and zeroed in on three authors as the second prize winners and two consolation prize winners.
The first prize winner is Shampa Sadhya. The reward: cash prize of Rs.125/- and a virtual gift of the certificate of creativity.
The second prize winners are Sanjeev Gupta, Sun, and Sharada. The reward for each: Rs.100/- + virtual gift of appreciation.
The consolation prize winners are Varghese and Sankalan Bhattacharya. The reward: Rs.75/-.
Congratulations to all the winners! We would also like to express our appreciation to all the authors of the ebook chapters for the effort put in towards making this ebook a fairly good success. Every participant will get a minimum of 10 points, cash credits, and the bonus +2 as announced to the 13 non-winning chapters.
(Ryyu - although you did submit a sweet, charming chapter since it was not submitted in time and was misplaced as a closing chapter, you will be given points only. We hope this is a learning experience and you participate with equal zeal in future contests).
A footnote for all - henceforth please bring out elements in the chapter that are related to the ebook theme otherwise prizes may not be awarded.
