A couple of months ago we went on a mission to search for some of the best unseen writers, poets and speakers, as part of our Search for a Verse competition in association with Words of a Color Productions. Our motive was to locate and bring to light some of the UK’s most talented, inspiring & poetic written work that not only embraced cultural elements, but also fell in line with our moral values. It needed not only to be captivating but also to tell a story that people from all walks of life could relate to. It needed to represent the multicultural society we live in today.
It was a tough decision to make, as we were bombarded by a hoard of talented writers who all brought something original. However, after hours of deliberation and skimming through an eclectic mix, we managed to whittle it down to our top three!
Winners Isatu Bundu, Natreema Asafu-Adjaye and Galina Makohon, we’re the amazing three that we picked out from the bunch. Their winning entries stood out amongst the crowd and each one of them delivered a unique piece that was innovative and artistic. They will have a chance to work alongside Color blind Cards in the future and will have their work published and showcased at an upcoming event in May 2014 (TBC) and internationally. Their work will continue to contribute to the growth of diversity in our high-streets.
