Llongyfarchiadau everyone! I thought different name for each entry was a rule, to stop people thinking, “Oh, that person is already winning this other category, so I’ll vote for someone else.” Which would not actually, be right!
Mae ddrwg gen i. Every time I see the ceremony, I think the same thoughts, but I realise now that it is not the right topic for here. I see what you mean @margaretnock. Diolch for explaining. It is a local peace. This I can comprehend and I am glad Iolo was a pacifist. Bards make beauty not death.
Wps, how embarrassing to win a category with only one entry! (Especially as it sounds so sleepy - I just showed it to my husband, who was rolling about laughing… “Did you record that when you were ill?” "Um, yes well… ")
But I did really want a tee-shirt! Felly diolch yn fawr iawn!!!
Why really? There was also an option “No award” wasn’t it? And if one would think you don’t deserve an award they would click that option. The voting was anonymous so no one would know who clicked that one. I found your entry just great and to be honest … I’ve listened to “example” recitation before and after I’ve listened to yours so was very sure to tell that your recitation was very good.
I’d thought to go with recitation myself but I have such specific voice many would recognize me so I’ve dismissed to go with that. I even had a crazy idea to change my voice with some software but then again I felt it just wouldn’t be fair. Singing would also be very recognizable and with prose I’m not really good in Cymraeg yet so here we are.
I’ve made my promise last year and I fulfilled it. I’ve entered with visual art but my choice of artwork wasn’t too good one. I couldn’t stand a chance to go higher as all other entries were way better then mine.
