Australian Panellists in the Press Service International young writer program with Christian Today named their "Best Articles" of the year at the recent Awards night on the Gold Coast.
The seven Australian Panellists, as well as marking the young writer's articles for the overall Basil Sellers $1000 Young Writer Award and the overall Consistent Best Articles $500 known as The Mark and Delma Tronson, were also requested to list out their seven best articles of the year.
Those young writers on those Panellists' lists received a PSI young writer Best Article inscribed coffee mug along with a certificate listing of their articles that the Panellists deemed their "best articles".
Not all Panellists listed seven articles they deemed as best.
The 2014 young writers listed were:
