      Hi Val,
      Apologies you never received a reply on this comment – our team was snowed under at this time and comments on the website were not tracked. I hope you submitted nonetheless! The mindshare Awards will be back in 2020, likely opening August and I hope you will enter again. If you face any problems in future, just contact me on anna.jeavons@mhcsa.org.au
