This year’s topic was Life and Mekong River Sustainability, and after a strict selection process, Dr Setharin Penn, a professor of Khmer literature at the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP), won the short story competition.

Best poem went to Siem Reap province’s Moeun Samnang, who is well known for his poetry.
