Claire Dyer has now chosen her long list from the entries to the Paradox Paragram Prize.
In her comments when making her judgements Claire says:
‘Judging this competition has proved both challenging and inspiring. I have learnt lots! I have also greatly enjoyed witnessing the many and varied interpretations of the theme, been impressed with the skill and courage of the entrants, as well as their intelligence, compassion and generosity of spirit.’
All Long List pieces will be included in this year’s Paragram anthology, due to be published by the end of 2016 by Paragram Press. The Short List and subsequent winners in each category will be chosen and the details posted on this site as soon as they become available.
