As our main contribution to Jamaica50, My-Island-Jamaica.com launched a unique Jamaica50 poetry contest.
And it was a bomb!
We had some remarkable articles!
Our esteemed judges narrowed it down to the TOP 10 and then we opened the voting segment to the public.
Well the voters spoke and here now are...
|1st Place...||2nd Place...||3rd Place...|
|Jamaica Land I Love|
by Janae (Trelawny,Jamaica)
|Aye Mi Jamaica Gal|
by Pheonia Bailey (London, UK)
|Jamaica - My Happy Place|
by Sharon (Canada)
Congratulations again Janae, Pheonia and Sharon!
Very, very, very well done!
But take at look at these below, THE TOTAL TOP 10!
The others are equally lovely (or in the minds of some, even better, just that they didn't amass the number of Facebook votes) but these 10 really resonated with the voters.
Georgeous don't they?
Of course! It was a real pity we had to narrow it down to just 3, but we have to make hard decisions everyday :-(
Such love and passion for Jamaica!
All lovely, aren't they? Absolutely!
I also promised a 'Non-Best' award but happy to say, they were all good.
I seriously couldn't find any such 'Non-Best' so I decided to award the prize; that's a complimentary copy of the "Jamaica Insider Guide" to VICENTE MONTEMAYOR, for the Spanish entry "LLOVIENDO EN JAMAICA!"
"But Why?", you may ask. Well the answer is quite simple.
It was different and showed the versatility, creativity and also displayed the passion for Jamaica.
Thanks to all those who participated. All in all it was a remarkable event.
It was educating, exciting and fun!
Happy JA50 To You All! Jamaicans or Jamaicans at Heart! Love You!
