The “Gorsedh Kernow Awards and Competitions” replaces the old awards and competitions.  The change to a more flexible system will enable us to recognise and celebrate a much greater range of Cornish cultural activity alongside of the more traditional arts and literary entries. It will also open the doors to new media technologies.

A special awards ceremony is held during the Esedhvos week before the Gorsedh Kernow ceremony on the first Saturday of September 2019. The awards ceremony will also include displays, presentations and performances by award winners. Full details will be posted on this website and in the Esedhvos Programme nearer the date.

The Gorsedh Kernow Awards are divided into “Adults” and “Young People”. Leaflets in pdf format will give more detailed information about the awards and how to submit . Please feel free to circulate these to anyone you feel may be interested. There is no restriction on who may submit an entry.

The aims of Gorsedh Kernow include “to maintain the national Celtic Spirit of Cornwall and to give expression to such spirit, to encourage the study of Cornish history, literature and the Cornish language, Kernewek”.  Awards will be given to submissions which realise these aims and demonstrate exceptional quality of work.   This work might be in the arts, sports, Cornish studies or community service.
