Best Horror: Sediment by Bhanu Pratap

Best Sci-fi: SPEIROCHORY by Karenza Sparks

Best Fantasy: Why don’t you like me? by Gaia Papoila

Best Romance: when it started by Leecie

Great. Though I personally feel the Mini Comic Awards would benefit enormously from the addition of a “What the **** is this?” category.
