  • Creative Writing Short Story for DEF CON 27 Contest Winners!

    Official Twitter PostsAnnouncement

    It’s time to announce the winners for the DEF CON 27 Short Story Creative Writing Contest!

    Just like last year we have asked a few people that we think are representative of the community to help us choose the People's Choice award. Those people are HighWiz (DC101), Yvette (Wall of Sheep), Subterfuge (Hardware), and Alyssa (QueerCon). Each individual represents a different part of DEF CON and volunteered to read the stories. All were fantasticthis year and gave us insight on some great stories.

    Now, without further ado, here are the winners!

    In FIRST place we have "Dye Sublimation" by Selene Sun! We loved the quick, well-told, and charming story about taking chances.

    In SECOND place is "Parsnips" by David Hash Miller (@DavidHashMiller), a fun and creative romp with nanotechnology. Congrats!

    People's Choice award goes to "Red Balloons Over China" by FengJiu! It was a hard choice, but it won majority vote amongst our judges for this year. What a wild and wonderful story that gives hope for tomorrow!

    While we couldn’t give out badges to everyone, we absolutely loved all of the entries and highly encourage folks to go out and read them all! Congrats to our winners and thank you to everyone for making choosing just a few so difficult.
