Poetry Competition -- deadline Oct 3oth 2012
« on: July 03, 2012, 01:34:22 AM »

Application deadline

October 30th 2012


£6 entry fee for first poem, £3 for each additional poem

Established in 1978, the Poetry Society’s National Poetry Competition is one of the world’s most prestigious poetry contests.

The judges this year are Vicki Feaver, W.N. Herbert and Nick Laird. Winners include both established and emerging poets, and for many the prize has proved an important career milestone.

Win, and add your name to a roll-call that includes the current UK Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, Tony Harrison, Ruth Padel, Philip Gross and Jo Shapcott – and have your work published in the Poetry Society’s leading international journal, Poetry Review.

The prizes are: £5,000 for the overall winner, £2,000 for the second, £1,000 for the third, with seven commendations of £100. The deadline is 31 October. Enter online or download an entry form at

There are 2 dates mentioned here [not me, the site] -- I'd play safe and go for 30th Oct rather than 31st! ;) ;)
