Results of the Fourth Biber Short Story Contest
Some 750 stories were entered in the Fourth Biber Short Story Contest. The jury made up of Tatjana Gromača, Anton Berishaj and Selvedin Avdić has decided on the awards and made a selection of stories to be published in a multilingual collection.
The three winning stories are:
First Prize: “Ptičice” [Birdies] by Bojan Krivokapić from Novi Sad
Second Prize: “Kućica u šumi” [Little House in the Woods] by Alma Tabak from Sarajevo
