The fourth Poetry Idol final I have photographed and unfortunately it also spells the end of regular Poetry Idol contest with next year's final being held in a different format.

Due to work and other things that came up I wasn't able to attend the last three heats but they must have gone well or there wouldn't have been such a good contest in the final.

I thought it was great final with lots of excellent contestants and not much between them. I still remember seeing Rhys Rogers at the Mornington Heat where he won the audience prize and it was good to see him win.

Cheers to Trish who I haven't seen for a while and it was also great to see Les Murray read as I hadn't seen him since last year.
