Josephine Sowden Deterred by Eisteddfod’s Welsh Language Rule

Josephine Sowden (Photographic Art graduate) says that she may not enter the National Eisteddfod competition again because of a rule stating that only the Welsh language may be used. This is after she won last year’s competition with a video peace filmed in English.
