We ran the Illuminati 2011 annual contest between March and May 2011, and received over 200 entries in the poetry and and short story sections. Many of those had to be rejected because of not following some of the rules of the competition. A final list of 90 Poems and 19 Short Stories made it to the voting and judging stages of the competition, and after the long process of tallying the scores and votes, the results are as follows…
