Stuart Byrne, Dyslexia Gibraltar Chairperson said:

"Dyslexia Gibraltar would like to thank all the participants for their entries and hopes that in the process of doing research for their bookmark designs, they found out a little bit more about Dyslexia. We also want to thank the Ministry of Culture and the Department of Education for making this a success as part of the annual Cultural Programme."
