Flashbang 2012 has closed. Thanks to everyone who entered. We received over 120 stories, which our judges are now reading with relish. We plan to publish a longlist of around 20 stories, details of which should appear on this site on or just after 22 April. So not long to wait. The shortlist will be published here on 4 May, and final winners announced 14 May. Good luck to everyone involved, and thanks for making Flashbang’s first year such a belting success.
