Divine Chocolate Fairtrade poetry competition winners 2012
Divine Chocolate Fairtrade poetry competition

25 June 2012

The results are in from the 10th annual Divine poetry competition, in partnership with Christian Aid - and it's been a great year!

The poetry competition, which was linked to Fairtrade Fortnight 2012, attracted more than 2,000 entries, with over 300 poems submitted to the brand new Welsh-language competition.

This year's theme was 'My chocolate shop', and the judges were very pleased with the quality of work submitted. 'Some amazing poems', said popular poet and author Frank Cottrell Boyce, who judged the English entries.

The Welsh judge, Eurig Salisbury, who is the current Welsh-language Children's Poet Laureate and winner of the chair at the 2006 Urdd Eisteddfod, agreed: 'some outstanding poems, full of imagination.'
