The University of Canberra has established an international poetry prize which celebrates the enduring significance of poetry to cultures everywhere in the world, and its ongoing and often seminal importance to world literatures.
Offered for the first time in 2014, the Prize is now open for entries, with submissions closing 30 May. The winner receives $15,000, with the runner-up taking home $5,000. Four additional poems will be shortlisted.
Entries must be single poems to a maximum of 50 lines. Entries cost $15 per poem if submitted by 31 January; $20 if submitted between 1 February and 30 May. Student discounts apply.
