Stone Soup began running a weekly Flash Contest in March 2020, based on our first Daily Creativity prompt of the week, which ran until the end of August 2020. What started as just one of our new projects to support our readers and contributors caught up in lock down and in quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic, turned into a popular weekly tradition where hundreds of young people picked up the prompt on a Monday, responded to it during the week, and sent us their work by Friday. The following weekend we published 5 of our favourites, and congratulated a few Honorable Mentions.
Every contest has its own winners' page, where you can read all the winning entries for the week. You can link to all of them from the list below. Congratulations to everyone who took part–especially our winners–and thank you for sending us your work!
