I want to thank everyone who participated in the contest.
One of the most exciting aspects of the Best 1000 Words for the Image Contest was the diversity of writing. But that’s what picture prompts do, they spark feelings, memories, or inspire the writer to find new meanings for the images.
We, humans, are visual. With phones today, we record moments of joy, sadness, suffering, and splendor. We’ll sit for hours looking at old photos of us as children, laugh at the clothing of the time, or remember a deceased relative with love.
They breathed life into the still image and took us to some unexpected places, too. Whether it was poetry or narrative, we saw the worlds, people, and places that they created. We experienced joy and melancholy through their words.
While each of the writers gave us enjoyable, thought-provoking, other-worldly or nostalgic writing, this is also the announcement of the winner.
Winner of the Best 1000 Words for the Image Contest – Shahnaz Radjy!
Besides reading Shahnaz’s, “My Secret Legacy”, here’s a list of all the participants:
