Congratulations to the winners. You all deserve it.

Dear Jimmy and the rest of the hard working crew in kundiawa who are tirelessly putting together the croc prize for this year. Happy independence to you all and your family. Let me first take this time to express my sincere gratitude to you all. Without your effort we would not be bracing ourselves for what would be the best croc prize awards thus far. I am sure by now everyone is excited and looking forward to the award. I wish I could be there but circumstances beyond my control has forced me to cancel my trip to kindiawa at the last minute. Last week Friday me and my wife were advised by the doc that she will be due this week. We are expecting our second child, another son. I have been advised to stay by my wife's side to ensure all is well for her and the baby. While I am sad at missing the event I am equally happy and thank God for these wonderful blessings. My sincere apology Jimmy and the organisers if this will cause any inconvenience to the whole planning but I hope that is not the case. While I may not be there to take part in this wonderful event my thoughts are with you all. I wish you all the best and hope that this is a start of a great journey to reignite the literary spirit in our nation. I am fully behind the bandwagon and will give my supporr wherever necessary.

I will be providing my thoughts on the way forward for the croc prize. Something that I have already notified jimmy of.

Once again independence to you all. Congratulations again to the winning writers in this year's croc prize. God bless you all.

Congratulations to the other winners of the 2015 Crocodile Prize Competition.

Thanks Rashmii for your kind and encouraging words. I will strive to keep this spirit of inquiry alive in my future essays.

To all the writers throughout Papua New Guinea who contributed so many wonderful works of literature but missed out, I take my hat off to you all for trying and showing that PNG is blessed with abundance of writing talents that are ready to make their mark in the literary world.

Keep writing because it is more than just a "hobby" it is part of who we are as Papua New Guineans.

I read with smile and share the joy of your wins. Now we know, all of us can write and we will continue to write. To my Yalkuna Kaupa, wai wo.

Thankyou daddy MK, your proud Simbu son...

Congratulations olgeta winners. I take my hat off to this young Simbu man Philip Kaupa Gena whose writing continues to blossom.

Hopefully we will all meet in Kundiawa come September.

Congratulation winners of the 2015 Crocodile Prize. Just one piece of advice. Don't stop writing. Keep on going. You have made your mark in literature.

Congrats to you all the winners and see you all at Stony Peles Kundiawa.

Congratulations to all the winners!

Like Yasowa Kome up at Sirunki whose fascinating hotel story I wrote to win the coveted Prize, my writing has at last been recognised by the PNG government.

I am sure the government will continue to support this very important initiative - the Crocodile Prize competition and get suitable PNG-authored books into our classrooms.

Thank you Keith and Phil. Please sign your good names on the 2015 Crocodile Prize Anthology copy when you send mine later. Or if possible I can receive it from your very hands in Kundiawa.

Congratulations to all the winners. See you all in Kundiawa.
