  • The Capital Times link to the winning stories. Jodi Vander Molen's story is under "Honorable mention: Watcher, watched"
  • The painting given to the contestants as a starting point.
  • The lead judge's, C.J. Hribal, who wrote the short story collection "The Clouds in Memphis", comments:
    This is the equivalent of a split-screen story, in which we see the narrative unfold from two vantage points, that of the "watcher," a woman having a miserable time at the drive-in alone in the wake of a breakup, and that of the "watched," the couple she sees embracing in the ticket booth. The writer has a good eye for detail and psychological insight. The echo of each section's last line is also a nice touch.
