Turning Poetry into Film: New Competition

WWCTL logo













A new poetry competition for mindshare… turning poetry into short film.
mindshare are the 2014 recipients of Arts SA’s Strategic Community Partnership : Community Grant working with the Media Resource Centre and Access 2 Arts. As part of this project we are inviting poets, writers and individuals with lived experience of a mental health issue to submit a poem, which is between 16 and 40 lines.  You may also submit a poem or suite of poems to the maximum length of 40 lines.
A suite of poems is a number of short poems on the same theme, these poems are often numbered or have separate subtitles.
We are seeking good poetry on any theme for this competition and you may enter up to five poems with the competition closing on the 14th of July.
Our judge Jude Aqulina will select 8 poems from a diverse range of applicants. The winners of this competition will then be invited to take part in a digital story workshop in which they will turn their poetry into short films working with the Media Resource Centre.
