McCarthy and Stone Competition Winners

The winners of the A View From The Window competition were announced on Wednesday 19 April at An Evening with Sally Wainwright.

The competition, which was run by our headline sponsors McCarthy and Stone to celebrate our new partnership, received dozens of entries and the judges were delighted to receive poems and short stories on a range of topics and themes.

The judges, Festival Director Rachel Feldberg and Yorkshire Post Journalist Yvette Huddlestone were very impressed with the high standard of entries but after much deliberation the prizes were awarded to:

1st Prize – An Overnight stay at the Devonshire Arms Hotel

Chris Grogan, Not Much of a View

2nd Prize – Afternoon Tea at Bettys

Jo Peters, Appearances

3rd Prize – 2 Tickets to Ilkley Literature Festival

Phillipa Higgins, Now Then Peggy

4th Prize – Luxury Bettys Chocolate Hamper

Yvonne Lang, View from my Window

Well done to everyone who entered and don’t forget that our annual Poetry and Short Story competitions are now open for entries.
