The 2009 Festival

2009 PosterThe 2009 K'Ozzie Fest was held on Mount Kosciuszko (April 17), in Jindabyne (April 18) and in Cooma (April 19). Tens of performing artists – young and old, from around Australia, and from different backgrounds – entertained crowds at both the day and evening events.

The announcement of the winners of the Strzelecki Art Competition, and the exhibition of works submitted for the competition, were just two of the highlights of the festival. More memorable moments can be found by following the links below.

Please Note: Unless otherwise indicated, the following links will either keep you on the kozziefest.org website, or take you to the Polish-Australian Internet Newspaper Puls Polonii.

An array of photographs captured all of the colour and dynamism of the festival. The images were assembled by Puls Polonii editors.

- Photo-gallery one: Friday, April 17
- Photo-gallery two: Saturday, April 18
- Photo-gallery three: Sunday, April 19

Oskar Kantor produced the following short film, in Polish, about the festival. The narrator is Dariusz Paczynski of SBS Radio.
