Poetry Foundation Ghana announces its inaugural (2013) Ghana Poetry Prize: An award of $ 1,000.
Ghana Poetry Prize is built on the hugely successful 2012 Online Competition, which was done under the name Ghana Poetry Awards.
The aim of this prize is to support younger emerging poets.
The Prize is sponsored by Poetry Foundation Ghana and we hope to increase our Prize when we have enough funds from other sources.
People with interest in poetry are invited to help in this direction and we will be grateful for your sponsorship.
The contest is open to anyone, anywhere in the world.
The submission (a maximum of two poems) must not be more than 30 lines long and is free to enter.
Deadline for entries is June 30, 2013
Please post your submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject Poetry Prize.
A shortlist will be announced in July. The winner will be announced by September.
The names of judges for this competition will be released in due time.
Please Note: The submitted poem must be original and should not have been submitted anywhere.
