|Someone recently asked, what’s the big deal about a shortlist?|
What’s the big deal?
A shortlist groups together the best!
It acknowledges the most accomplished of a long and always healthy collection of entries.
It’s also how we make competitions like the Scribbles Creative Writing Awards, manageable — both for the judges and for the competitors.
Imagine if we only gave out two prizes, two ‘nods’, per category. Judges would tear out their hair. Creators would feel jaded and demoralised. And rightly so!
A shortlist gives more people a chance to shine. It spreads the love a little further.
