Many thanks to all the poets who have entered to date.

Over the past two months, the Five Islands Press website and Ron Pretty Poetry Prize entry page have been down at least twice. This is fixed now. But the Press wants to offer poets more time to enter the prize.
We are extending the prize until 22 November 2016.

With this new deadline, the long list will now be announced on 21 January 2017
The short list will be announced on 31 January 2017
The prize winner will be announced at an event on 3 March 2017

First Prize: $5000
Second Prize: $1500
Third Prize: $750
Judge: Ron Pretty

The prize will be awarded to a single poem of up to 30 lines, and is open to anyone over the age of 18 years, including overseas applicants.

Entry fee is $25 for the first poem and $10 for subsequent poems. There are no limits on entries.
