...postponed until Monday actually.
At the risk of sounding like a British Rail Apologies Announcement due to the wrong kind of snow or the weight of the leaves on the track, the delay is due to the level of entries this month which far exceeded our expectations - both in terms of quality and quantity.
This doesn't mean that the deadline has been extended, though, only the announcement of the winner.
Anyway, piggy-backing the unprecedented-ness of this month, we have also decided to have an additional winner at the end of February, although NO FURTHER ENTRIES ARE BEING ACCEPTED as of midnight last night.
AND, after the OVERALL WINNER has been announced, the prize awarded and we've all shimmied out of our sequinned outfits, we'll also be highlighting some of the stories that we felt were Highly Commended. These will become posts throughout the year.
So bear with us everybody and remember the great British Rail motto*:
"It's bound to be great if you have to wait."
* No, I know it isn't really, but it should be, don't you think?
