Poetry competition: The Outspoken Prize for Poetry 2020


27 January 2020
The overall winner will get £700

The Outspoken Prize for Poetry 2020 is inviting entries from UK residents.

Entries are in three categories: poetry on the page (any style, from traditional to experimental), performance poetry (audio/video of a live spoken word performance) and poetry films (not longer than ten minutes, with the poem either being read by a narrator or featured as subtitles).

Three category winners will be selected, and an overall Prize for Poetry, worth £700, given to one of the three. Entrants must be able to attend the award ceremony in London on 30 April where they will present their poems. The performance category will be judged as a slam.

To enter, send original, unpublished poems.

The entry fee is £5 per poem.
