We are overjoyed with the submissions to our first writers competition. With nearly 200 entries across three categories, the judges have been working hard to come up with a short-list. We are pleased to say that the quality has been very high, but ultimately, there will be only one prize in each category.
Here are the short-lists by category.
Rory Boyd—The Sad Ocean
Billie Philp—Butterfly Bravery
Beth Carney—Odd Socks
Meg Hill—August Rap
Lyra Philp—The Power of Words
Due to the small number of entries in this category, all entries were short-listed
The winners of the Children’s and Youth categories will be announced by Isobelle Carmody at either the Foreshore market (weather permitting) or the Foodworks from 9:45am.
