Thank you to everyone who entered the contest and congratulations to the shortlist. Next week we will announce the first-prize winner, who will get $500 and be published on the cover of issue 39.2 of Room, along with the second-prize ($50 and publication inside 39.2) and honourable mention (publication on our website) winners.
