As I write this year’s last post for Indie Shorts Mag, I can’t help but be elated for the wonderful team I have. Their achievement deserves notice. But, that’s not why I write this. I’ll save that one for later (maybe the first post of 2021? 😉).
For now, I am really excited to announce the winners of our annual event – Short of the Year Awards.

Congratulations to all the winners!
This was supposed to have been a live event rather than a post. And, it makes me sad that we had to cancel it due to COVID-19 restrictions. (Damn the COVID-19!)
However, just to tempt fate, I wish to announce beforehand that we intend to hold Short of the Year Awards 2021 on a much larger scale and involve more publications. The plans are already underway and details shall soon follow.
There, I have put it out!
And, on behalf of my very hardworking team, I send you very good wishes for a cheerful 2021!
