ALL PROUD was highly commended in the Flash Mob 2013 competition, and is now published at Blue Five Notebook thanks to editors Michelle Elvy and Sam Rasnake.
Thanks also to the other Flash Mob organisers, Christopher Allen, and Linda Simoni-Wastila, and judges Leah McMenamin, Robert Vaughan, Nuala Ní Chonchúir, and Marcus Speh. Congratulations to the winners and everyone who took part.

Congratulations! This was one of my favourites 🙂
