Entries are being called for the 2014 Dungala-Kaiela Writing Awards that are open to all Indigenous people with a connection to the Goulburn Valley.

The awards were inaugurated in 2012 to provide an opportunity for writing and self-expression in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

There are three award categories:

The story/yarn/article/play category has three sections — junior up to 12 years, youth 13 to 18 years and open;

The poem/lyric/rap category has three sections — junior up to 12 years, youth 13 to 18 years and open; and

There is also a category with junior, youth and open sections for Aboriginal languages of this region in any written form. Some Aboriginal language words must be used, however the whole entry does not have to be written in Aboriginal language.

Translation is requested for all language entries.

Entry forms are available from all branches of Goulburn Valley Regional Library, or may be downloaded at

Entry forms are also available from Rumbalara Health Service, Rumbalara Rd, Mooroopna; and Rumbalara Aged Care Facility, Ford Rd, Shepparton.
