In its inaugural year, the Fantastica Prize received 80 entries from Australia and New Zealand and the judges had a very difficult job, debating and discussing at length to reach a shortlist.
We are proud to announce the shortlisted works:
BG Hilton for Shelley
Jan Henderson for Hide
Mark Braidwood for The Beasts of Nenovar
Anna Paxton for Lamb
Alison Ferguson for Grey Nomad
Ben Marshall for The Last Circus on Earth
The winner will be announced in the coming weeks.
