The competition was followed by a short concert.

Once again at Illawarra Folk Festival it was a delight to welcome so many performers still writing entertaining and thought provoking parodies on a number of topics including political satire and humour based on human foibles. Good to see that some of the regulars and previous winners such as John Tubridy and Jane Scott were still writing moving and thoughtful words. There were some new participants and they took out the winning spots this year. But congratulations to all and we look forward to seeing you back at next years Parody contest.
