'Dave Ursillo from Rhode Island, United States won for his entry “The Colors of Reykjavik Still Call To Me.”'

Iceland Writers Retreat '...second and third place winners are Colin Keohane with “Exchange” and Alison Kinney with “Cielo e Mar.”'

'Helga Lára Guðmundsdóttir of Iceland Travel, Chair of the Judging Panel, had this to say about the entries and the winner: “Receiving 500 stories left us with quite a bit of work, but it was very enjoyable. Why did we choose this story as the winner? We found it well written, focusing on Reykjavík/Iceland with a flavor of romance and bright descriptions — depicting a place which is worthwhile returning to!”'
