Oxford Brookes International Poetry Competition 2021
The Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre's International Poetry Competition celebrates the power of poetry across the world! Entries are open for the 2021 prize.
The competition is open annually to all poets aged 18 and over from across the globe and has two categories:
- Open category (open to all poets aged 18 years and over)
- English as an Additional Language (EAL) category (open to all poets aged 18 and over who write in English as an Additional Language)
The winners of each category will receive £1000 and both runners up £200.
We are delighted to say that this year's judge is the highly-acclaimed and award-winning poet Will Harris.
The competition entrance fee is £5 for each of your first three entries and then £4 for every subsequent poem. Entrants may submit a maximum of ten poems, following the instructions in the Oxford Brookes Online Shop. All entries must be unpublished work. Please read the full competition criteria and terms and conditions before entering. They are available on this page.
The competition deadline is Monday 20 September 2021 at 23:00 BST/22:00 GMT.
The results will be announced in late October 2021 and we will e-mail all entrants to let them know about the winners and shortlistees.
