I've got a spreadsheet of all the short story and flash competitions I've entered and I update it with the result - a yellow highlight if I place and a grey highlight if I didn't get anywhere. I was just looking through it to see if there are any stories I can 'recycle' and send out and noticed there are a couple of comps from last year where I've got no idea of the result. I can't find any updates on the comp websites and a google search doesn't reveal anything.
Does anyone know anything about the following comps? If you know the results have been announced or someone who placed in one of them could you let me know (you don't have to name names) just so I get the grey highlighter out and send my stories elsewhere.
1) Belvedere Writers (closing date 31 July 2007)
2) The Lady short story competition (closing date 7 October 2007)
3) Seafield short short story comp (closing date 31 October 2007)
4) W.F. and F.G. Froud Memorial Competition (closing date 31 October 2007)
Edited to add: I received the results of the Seafield competition today (28 Feb). They are as follows:
First prize: Pat Borthwick for "Late Road Home"
Second Prize: Jo Burge for "The Road Not Taken: You Are There"
Third Prize: Mrs JT Drazin for "Regret"
First Prize: Helen Kitson for "Woman's Work"
Second Prize: Ann Bennett for "Ped Xing"
Third Prize: Mary Green for "The Girl in Our Lives"
