Thank you so much to all of the children who entered this year's KalliKids Short Story competition. We have been inundated with over 500 fantastic stories and have loved reading every one of them.
The theme "Shine" has had more adaptations than we could count, highlighting the incredibly creative imaginations of our budding authors.
We hope you get the chance to read as many of these fabulous stories as possible and please let us know which ones are your favourite.
Our very own KalliKids ambassador and best selling author Joanna Rees has chosen the 2015 Short Story winners and runners up in each category.
Each of the wining stories is complimented with its very own reading by Joanna Rees, which can be viewed through the individual stories page below.
Watch her video here.
The top three stories in each catagory have been made into the KalliKids Short Story Winners Book!
The book is available online as an e-book or as a hardcopy.

The e-book has been lovingly created by CUT, the online publisher for writers.
