Out of 10 noted Konkani writers, five were shortlisted for the final round. The winner was chosen through democratic voting system where Stan Ageira was chosen with more than 60% votes by the members.

52-year-old Stan Ageira is well-known in the field of Konkani literature. His first short story was published in 1975 when he was barely 14 and as on date he has written over 300 short stories and 18 novels in Konkani.
