The Pick of the Year

For our 18th anniversary, we created the Pick of the Year to honor, acknowledge and celebrate our contributors who did us a huge favor by submitting their works to us. We are sharing with the readers and potential contributors the reasons we loved and accepted a particular flash. Consider this Pick a typical flash representing each year.
 
Welcome to the Picks. We will add one year at the time, periodically, through 2018.
