Thanks to everyone who threw their hat in the ring for our Corinbank ticket competition, I was genuinely impressed by the strength of the entries.
With some entries in from people I know (not to mention the ex wanting recompense for, ahem, a broken bed)* I went searching for a judge this evening and star of stage and screen, Adam Hadley obliged.
The winners were thus duly judged to be:

Because when I took my daughter last time, when she was 5, and asked her at the end of the weekend what she had liked best about the festival she replied: “The music. And the love.” That’s my reason for really wanting to go again.
The reason why I deserve to get the tickets for free is that all my available money will go to mortgage repayments this year. And all I’ll have to show for it is a sh!tty little house in Gungahlin!
“for adorable” judged Mr Hadley. And:

Until very recently I was unaware of the legend that is Corinbank. How is this possible? I am not sure.
I have been told by knowledgeable individuals that I would very much enjoy all that is Corinbank. Despite not know a single artist, I believe them. Indie music, green initiatives and slow food – this sounds like my sort of festival.
In line with the green ethos of the festival my other ticket would be given to someone riding all the way from Adelaide – given the timing of their arrival to Canberra one may even infer that they had planned it just for Corinbank, that is if they have a ticket to attend.
I am a lover of food, both eating it and cooking it. And, although banana and chocolate muffins may not fit the true definition of slow food, (read: I am willing to bake muffins for tickets).
Basically, I would love to go. The festival looks amazing and I have been told great things. However, as I have been cycle touring with no income for the last few months I am struggling to justify the financial costs associated with buying tickets. I would appreciate these tickets because they will not only enable me to attend, but they will also without doubt prove right those knowledgeable individuals who informed me about Corinbank.
“For the Muffins – so long as I get them” said Hadley. (We note jmljen is not actually obligated to muffin up Hadley)
If the winners can email me ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) from their registered address we’ll set you up with the tickets.
For those pipped at the post you’ll need to get your tickets the old fashioned way.
