Jim Wardrop congratulates Winner David McKelvie

It was a tense evening with adjudicator Jim Wardrop in control. He eloquently went through each competition entry giving us insight and guidance on each of the stories.

His praise was for the variety and high skill level from the authors and mentioned several times what a pleasure it was for him to be asked to judge this competition.

The results were as follows:

1. David McKelvie with “The Noble ‘Fifteen”. (The 1715 uprising)
2. Lesley Holligan with “The Centenary of the Sinking of the RMS ‘Lusitania’ 1915-2015”.
3. Sue MacPhee with “It Was Great When It All Began”. (Rocky Horror)
4. Commendation (we at GWC refer to this as ‘an honourable mention’): Franziska Kerber with “Blue Gold”. (Levi Strauss jeans)
A great evening had by all.
