There were 150 entries from 23 countries. Our wonderful judges had a very tough job narrowing these exciting and diverse entries down to the Shortlists below. Judging took place anonymously with the judges not being aware of the identities of the makers. Thanks to all those who entered the competition and well done to all the shortlistees. Good luck...

 

We'll be announcing the winners on Thursday 5th November at 5pm.

Winners prizes include flights and invites to HearSay2015 and 10 other entrants will be entered into                        a draw for 10 HearSay2015 invites!!
