      Usually we select a winner after one or two week.
      But, given that we are at the end of the year, it's going to probably take more time than usual.
      Also, this time we have more possible entries than usual :D
      The usual are bunch of entries with spam and text that can't be consider as a short story :(

    I urge everyone (including the CH) to report #15. He copies and pastes all his entries from the internet. Like this one: https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelgoldstein/2021/05/18/missing-aircraft-mysteries-from-flying-tiger-flight-739-to-malaysia-mh370-still-no-answers/?sh=1c248af762a6

      With his plagiarized work and complete disregard for other people's time, money, and effort, this spineless fellow has now won three contests too. He deserves to be reported and banned for spreading this filth in all these contests.

    Dear CH, can this story be a third person story. Like someone(a character of choice) may be narrating the story of what happened in his life or something similar like that. Please let me know if I can work on this or I should write a normal one.

    Hola! Muy interesante el tema del concurso. Existe la posibilidad de sellarlo? De esta manera ayuda a proteger los trabajos desde que son publicados en la plataforma. Cuando habla de un máximo de 3000 palabras, cuánto sería el mínimo? Gracias por su atención. Saludos!

      Leonardo: sorry. But you could post your entry near the end of the contest if you want, so no one could use your ideas.
      The winner will be selected after the deadline.

      Safwan: I'll rate or reject (or report) the entries when I have the time. Sorry.

      Philipp: I'm going to add the links of the pasts contents soon. About the other thing you mention: exactly. Thats what usually happens...
