A cash prize of RM2,000 was awarded by Oxford University Press (OUP) managing director (Asia education) Adrian Mellor to winners Ku Jia Sien from Penang Chung Ling Private High School for her story "The Surreal Journey" (Category A, ages 15-17) and to Nur Fatin Afrina Mohd Fakhruddin from Kolej Islam Sultan Alam Shah for her entry titled "Sev & the Hot Chocolate" (Category B, ages 18-19).
