We carry on this morning with results from the other category judged by Tecwyn and Rhiannon Ifan : Recitation.

However, it was decided to add a judges choice or special mention also for the categories originally planned as “People’s choice only”.

So a quick step back to Cân Gyfoes / Contemporary Song to announce Original composition special prize to…

“Y Dre Ger Y Lli” by Blaidd ap Gododdin (Bren Riley)!

And now, Tecwyn and Rhiannon Ifan’s choice for Adrodd / Recitation category.

Cydradd gyntaf (wel, I don’t know how to say this in English! Tied? :sweat_smile: so here goes Welsh)
Bachgen y Cymoedd (Alun Morgan - @alunmorgan)
Llanw a Thrai (Jenny Roberts)

Ail (agos): Enfys (Anne May)

Cydradd trydydd:
Iola (Helen Palmer - @h-palmer)
Rhosyn Coch (Diana Allpress - @diana-allpress)

People’s Choice:
Bachgen y Cymoedd (Alun Morgan - @alunmorgan)

Congratulations to all!


Wow! Llongyfarchiadau! Da iawn Bren!

It’s obvious that the standard of the Recitation was so high, the judges had trouble deciding between you. Da iawn chi! Well done to you all!


And now, Monolog / Monologue category!

Judge Bethan Gwanas’s choice:
“Môr a Mynydd o Mr Biggleswade” by Mrs Lloyd Rhif Tri (Cetra Coverdale Pearson - @Cetra)

People’s Choice:
“Llawdriniaeth Clun” by Deri Dee (Vicki Edmunds)

Da iawn!


Diolch yn fawr/ thank you very much!! And llongyfarchiadau/ congratulations Vicki!! :slight_smile: :heart_eyes:
I’m just trying to come to terms with the idea of Bethan Gwanas (!!) listening to us being bonkers!! Wow!! :star_struck: Thank you Bethan!!! :star_struck:


@Cetra, I know that feeling, too! In my case I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that Tecwyn and Rhiannon Ifan listened to my recording and actually liked it! :star_struck: Diolch!


Wow @Hendrik!!:exploding_head: But I’m not surprised that they liked it!! :heart_eyes:


Fi hefyd! :slight_smile:


Thanks Cetra, and to everyone who voted!

The effort was apparently all too much for the 40-year-old drum machine that you hear briefly at the beginning of my track, which has now taken to having a bit of a meltdown. It needs a “holiday” (i.e. a trip to the repairer!) I think…


Ffotograffiaeth / Photography with 15 entries and 94 voters in the poll was one of the most successful categories. A strong fight until last minute for #1 position in the polls!
People’s Choice final winner is…

“Y llongddrylliad yn Cynffig” by Nidstar (Nic Humphries)

And judge Nick Treharne’s choice is…
“Priodas Mynyddoedd Cuillin, Ynys Skye” by Natur (Suzanne Arnold)

Congratulations to all!


Congratulations to all the winners, and well done to everyone who took part!


Llongyfarchiadau Cetra

2il “Murmur y Môr” by Talybont (Philip Huckin)
