THE WINNER AND RUNNERS-UP will be announced at the end of July 2013 (Note: A winner will only be chosen if we've received sufficient entries. If this is not the case, the deadline will be extended.)

JUDGING: Scottish poet John Thomson, author of Glasgow Kisses and Ragged Claws and Peaches will judge the entries. Among his magazine credits are Carillon, Aesthetica and Magma. Very sensibly, he refuses to enter into any correspondence and tells us his decision will be final. To make judging as fair as possible, all entries are judged blind
