2019 Presentation Ceremony

On the 6th September 2019, the winners of the 2019 Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards will be presented with their prizes.

Congratulations to the students who captivated the judges with their imagination and creativity. We were lucky to be joined by special guest speaker Gabrielle Chan and judges Kat Apel and Meredith Costain.

The Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards wishes to thank all the teachers, students and parents who submitted poetry this year, as well as the sponsors, special guests and VIP's who make this whole competition possible.

We look forward to seeing next year's entries!

The 2019 anthology is available to pre-order now. This year, we will be offering a digital version to reduce paper wastage. Orders are expected to be sent in October-November.
