We have winners!

We ran a Kickstarter campaign to fund prizes for the best visions for Volume 2 of Life Plus 2 Meters. The 16 judges were Kickstarter backers, authors from Volume 1 (not submitting to Volume 2), and followers of this project.

The judges had 33 diverse and interesting visions to read and vote on, and here are the results:

Best story

  1. Daniel Gilbert for A Marsh Arab’s story
  2. Emma J. Myatt for Amplitude
  3. John Sayer for Data recovery unit – subsection culture

Best perspective

  1. Kalila Eve Morsink for Blue death
  2. Finbarr Swanton for All empires fall
  3. Ed Dolan for 2100: Hot, crowded and rich

Best by under 26 years old*

  1. Joes de Natris for Climate-charged democracy?
  2. Jack Cooper for Seventy metres and September
  3. Celia Daniels for We drown with history

Best by author from Economically Developing Country*

  1. Ignacio Carlucho for Dusk
  2. Anna Maria for Browsing pages

Winners will receive US$100 for first place, $50 for second place, and $25 for third place.

We are now moving into editing and improving all 33 visions (you may like some that did not win more than some that did, so please explore!) for publication in Volume 2, which should — if all goes well — come out in December.
