Results from the 2012 WaBiaD Competition have been posted. CSFG’s entry was “Highly Commended” (ie, 2nd) in the national Open category.

Our entry’s artwork, by Shauna O’Meara, won Best Illustrations in the Open category.

Go, Shauna! The rest of us will have to do one better next year.

The judge’s report on our entry said: “The humour in this work about a zookeeper, a book lover and an elf, is superb, and the awful magician Mr Letchworth is truly awful! I loved the special ‘terms of endearment’ the elf gives to his master, not to mention the intriguing and many-faceted roles given to poo in this book! Children will love it!”
