We interrupt this contest . . .

. . . to close the submissions. Well done, everybody. We’ve enjoyed each entry. Here’s what happens next:

Five judges, whose opinions will be weighted equally, will choose a winner and an as-yet-unknown number of finalists. Winners and finalists will be announced simultaneously. The number of entries has exceeded our expectations; the judging will likely take several days.

Meanwhile, this is the part of the show, after the final curtain has fallen, when volunteers wielding empty coffee cans man the exits and ask for donations. All Lascaux expenses, including prize money, come from donations, or out of our own pockets. Please help defray these expenses and insure the availability of future prize money by clicking on the Donate button and giving what you can. Anything you can.




On behalf of all writers, for whom payment in this industry has become a luxury, you have our heartfelt gratitude.

Oh my goodness, so not all those entries that were submitted have been added to this blogsite?
I am disappointed. I've been looking forward to taking part and linking with my blog.

Madeleine, four entries ended up being hijacked by our spam filter. We have rescued these entries and someone is working on posting them as I type this message. The judges are still reading the entries, so no decisions have been reached. We are still waiting for everyone to get through all the entries. Each submission will be thoroughly considered. Sorry for any concern this might have caused but we're very happy the oversight has been corrected!

Thanks Wendy
