“It was tough considering that most of the poems are alike in all senses. Nice poems I must say. I had to screen based on errors and the like that crept up, in some cases, overt repetitions or things of the like that didn’t make sense. Still, it was a really close one and I only have ten here because I have no option.”
~ Judge 4 report

Congratulations to the shortlisted candidates and better luck next time to those that did not make it.
