2018 Awards Launch!

Click your pens and warm up your keyboards, because it's time to enter the 2018 Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards!

Since 1984, the Awards have inspired a nation of school children to express their creativity through the medium of poetry, just like our national treasure, Dorothea Mackellar.

This year, the competition is back with the optional theme, 'I Have Promises To Keep.'  

Entries are open to children aged K-12 from the 1st March and close 30th June 2018.
