This is an incredible achievement for an event run by a tiny group of volunteers with basically no government This is an incredible achievement for an event run by a tiny group of volunteers with basically no government assistance - they will be up against the likes of Dark MOFO, Mona Foma, Junction Arts Festival and Taste of Tasmania - all of which receive funding and marketing support from government and its agencies. We can be very proud of this small team for being named as a finalist. It is an extraordinary achievement just to receive the North-West nomination ahead of other major regional events such as Burnie Shines, Chocolate Winterfest, Devonport Jazz, the Wynyard Tulip Festival and the Devonport food festival, let alone to be contesting a state award against these other major events with far bigger budgets."
