We would sincerely like to thank ALLof you that entered our Australian Creative Writing Challenge for 2018. Presented across Australia, this national competition attracted over 1,000 entries from readers aged 7-12 years. As you can imagine, judging the winners was an extremely difficult process but with the help of our partners from Penguin Random House and authors Tristan Bancks, Jacqueline Harvey & Oliver Phommavanh we managed to narrow it down and choose the following well deserved junior writers as our 2018 champions. Stay tuned for Issue 2 of Just Kidding 2019 where we feature each of the winning stories for you all to enjoy and once again a huge thanks to everyone that entered. The effort and calibre of your stories was incredible and we look forward to running the competition again in 2019!
