We had a huge selection of great stories to choose from for this comp, each with their own unique interpretation of the theme.  It was challenging but in the end we managed to whittle the list down to eight stories.  The final Winner, Runner-up, and Highly Commended will be announced on 31st May 2018.

Congratulations and good luck to the eight finalists!
