Congratulations to all who entered this hard fought competition. Modern Australian bush poetry is striving and thriving.

Claycraft Productions are acknowledged as supporters due to their involvement crafting this unique trophy for the last 31 years from their base in Moonbi, NSW.

Thanks to Jodi Wales and Tamworth Trophy Supplies for maintaining support and the Tamworth link. They have the expertise and inclination to fuss with the curved panel the Billy requires.

The verse entries come in from throughout Australia. The stories and messages they contain are for everyone. Billy is good. Thank you to all who lend support.

Congratulations and thanks to all who contributed to another exceptional harvest of quality rhymed and metred Australian poetry. Applause to the winners.

CONGRATULATIONS ALL!
