To celebrate the stories and experiences of international students in Melbourne, we have been running a storytelling competition as part of the Melbourne Writers Festival.

The theme for 2019 was 'Love & Melbourne', with dozens of entries submitted for five categories. Members of the public could vote for their favourite story via the People's Choice Awards.

On 4 September 2019, the winners were announced at an awards ceremony held at The Wheeler Centre.
