Peter Porter Poetry Prize 2018

Post by Shelley » Tue Aug 08, 2017 7:19 pm

Hi All

Just thought I'd share this information from the Australian Book Review - for any of our writers who may be interested in having a shot at this open poetry competition.

The Peter Porter Poetry Prize (now worth $8,500) – a lucrative and prestigious international prize – is open again for the fourteenth time. Poets have until 3 December 2017 to enter.
The Prize will be judged by Bill Manhire, John Hawke, and Jen Webb. We welcome entries from all poets writing in English. In addition to the first prize of $5,000, the overall winner will receive Arthur Boyd’s etching and aquatint ‘The Lady and the Unicorn’. Second prize wins $2,000, and three other shortlisted poets each receive $500 each.
Visit our website for more information, to read poems by past winners, or to enter online. ... etry-prize
