Jenny Kangasvuo Takes Portti Prize

The first prize of the 2005 Portti writing competition went to Jenny Kangasvuo for her short story Aalto nahan alla.

The second place was tied between Carita Forsgren and Anne Leinonen, and the third (should be fourth, actually) place was also tied, between Jenny Kangasvuo (again) and J.K. Miettinen (who also took second place in this year’s Atorox awards).

The Portti competition is the biggest annual sf short story competition in Finland. Congratulations to the winners!
