The Much More Than Words competition has wrapped up for this year and we couldn’t have done it without our sponsors, Mid-Western Regional Council and Moolarben Coal. Without sponsorship, our competition and upcoming exhibition of entries would not be possible.
Congratulations to all those who entered. Every entry was of high quality with entrants ranging in age from ten years to grandparents, covering a wide range of topics. The combination of eye-catching images and wonderful prose and poetry made the judges’ job very difficult. But a decision had to be made. The first prize went to Deborah Cooke for ‘Rekindling’ (featured image). Below are all the finalists and the entries to be published in the Much More Than Words anthology.
Our exhibition for all entries and the launch of the anthology will be held in conjunction with the Mudgee Readers Festival on Saturday 27th August. Further details of the venue and time will be available closer to the date. We welcome everyone to come along to the exhibition and join in on the fun of the Launch. Our own poet and musician, Bob Campbell will be entertaining all in attendance.
Again, congratulations to all our entrants and those who made our finalists list.
