New Gorsedh Awards Scheme


“Our new Awards scheme is truly open to one and all”, said the Grand Bard of Cornwall Merv Davey, expressing his delight at the support the new Gorsedh Kernow scheme was already receiving, “but there is still time for more entries.” Designed specially to take an even greater account of Cornish culture, the new Awards are more flexible and less prescriptive and allow for entrants to demonstrate creativity in a variety of ways, including the use of digital media. “My fellow bards are as keen as anyone to help make it easy for people to show their love for Cornish culture and help us maintain the Celtic spirit of Cornwall.”

The new scheme merges the former childrens and adults competitions with the long established Gorsedh Kernow Council awards, creating a new range of Awards for adults and a separate range for young people under 18 years of age. “Entries have been arriving in the inbox, through the postbox and in some cases by personal delivery through the letterbox of the Awards Secretary since the new scheme was launched earlier in the year” said Merv Davey.

Awards will be given to entries that express the Celtic spirit of Cornwall and demonstrate exceptional endeavour or quality of work, whether it be in the arts, sports, Cornish studies or community service. “Awards for young people will be considered in one of three age groups and there are plenty of examples on the Awards information leaflet to get them started.”

The new Gorsedh Kernow Awards will be presented at a special evening event on Thursday 1st September during Esedhvos week and prior to the Gorsedh Kernow bardic ceremony at St Keverne on Saturday 3rd September. Award-winners’ work will be shown and displayed during the event, together with selected performances.
