Summer Memoir contest results

28 February 2024

Category: College and members


While the College celebrates its 50th Anniversary, we are collecting memories and accounts of the College鈥檚 growth and change. Last November, we invited College members to participate in our Summer Memoir creative writing contest to share their experiences, both their struggles and achievements, that link with the College and its 50 years of transformation.

We welcomed essays, short stories, poems or songs written in English, te reo M膩ori or any other language our members felt most comfortable using. Submissions were accepted until 20 January 2024 and then evaluated by the Editorial Team of GP Voice.


Winner 鈥 Dr Lucy O'Hagan

Winner 鈥 Dr Lindsay Quennell

Special mention 鈥 Dr Greg Judkins


The winners will receive a copy of Dr Glennis Mafi鈥檚 memoir . The winning submissions are published in full on the College website, and excerpts are also available in the February issue of GP Voice.

Warm thanks to all members who sent their submissions.
