- Grand Prize: Pigeon by Tracy King-Sanchez
- First Prize: Fall From Grace by Jodi Davis
As a hobby she likes to help interesting non-profit start-ups with their IT and business development needs. This has led her to work with quite a few interesting companies, including LiftPort (The Space Elevator Company), which is the one that stole her heart.
She also wrote, produced and directed the short film Lost Plural and produced the comic SF short films The Big Nothing (Cinequest Viewer’s Voice Choice), and COGS through her Desert Tribe Productions(www.deserttribeprodco.com), written a TV Pilot, Near Death for Mallory Media and optioned several scripts to independent production companies.
For the past sixteen years Jodi has worked with a computer firm that specializes in tradeshows, which allows her to travel all over the country. She is able to use her position to do a lot of research (computer geeks from NASA love apple martinis—who knew?!), and prides herself on hanging her dramatic premises on a framework of historical reality and factual reference. This rigid backbone only enhances the whimsical, fantastical or futuristic elements that are the signature of her body of work.
