THIRD PLACE

“Whispers From The Trench”

by Robert McKinney


That’s when I saw them. Three shapes dressed in enemy kit, slogging from their lines in the pockmarked soil to allied trenches to the southwest. Each had air tanks strapped onto their backs and had faces blocked by masks and gas bottle tubing.


SECOND PLACE

“The Violin Family”

by James Douglas

Music: Brice Catherin “Number 3: Version for violin and chamber orchestra” available at The Free Music Archive.


There are four members of the violin family: the violin, the viola, the cello and the double bass.
