And the winners are…

As you may know, 10ofThose is 10 years old! To celebrate this, we ran a competition to find new talent in five areas: books for adults, books for children, youth fiction, illustration and scriptwriting. We had lots of entries and our judges had a hard time picking the winners.

We are delighted to announce that the overall winner is Alison Brewis. Congratulations, Alison! The judges were delighted with her story The Longest Wait and particularly commended it for its clear presentation of the Christmas story, clever use of rhyme and additional ideas for parents. Alison will receive a £250 10ofThose gift voucher for her efforts.

Congratulations also go to these runners–up: Anna Norman (illustration), Thomas Robson (books for adults) and Rachel Lane (youth fiction) who all win a £100 10ofThose gift voucher. There was no overall winner in the scriptwriting category.

We’re pleased to say that Anna has agreed to illustrate an upcoming children’s book for us. The King’s Garden by Mike Cain, featuring Anna’s illustrations, will be released at Word Alive 2018.

Thank you to all who submitted entries. The judges really enjoyed reading such a wide variety of high quality submissions!
