My feature story on VGM (video games music, but remixed, reorchestrated, rearranged, etc.) was shortlisted for the Shorthand Awards, the handy publishing platform I have used for the story!
I loved doing that story. The VGM scene is a great community full of very cool people! I had great conversations with them, and they were all more than happy to talk to me.
