2021 Winners

Congratulations to all the young people who competed in the 2021 competition.

There were so many amazing, talented contestants from Rockingham and the greater metropolitan area that the judges struggled to choose winners from each category of the competition. This year our judging line-up included Jordan Anthony and Nikki D’Agostino with special guest judge Kav Temperley from Eskimo Joe joining us for the final event.
