Last Call for Bravado International Poetry Competition

The deadline looms for the 3rd Bravado International Poetry Competition, 2006, which will be judged by Tony Beyer this year. The closing date is - 31st August - so if you want to have a go, you'd better get yourself organised.

You can request an entry form from info.bravado@xtra.co.nz or send SSAE to Kaye Hubner
Competition Secretary
PO Box 13 533 Grey Street

A generous number of prizes - 1st $500, 2nd $250, 3rd $100 and 10 Highly Commended prizes of $50 each. Poems must be the original work of the entrant, previously unpublished and not under consideration elsewhere. There's a limit of 40 lines for each poem, and the entry fee is $5 a poem, or $10 for three entries.

Winners will be notified by post, but other entrants will receive a copy of the results only if they send an SSAE with their entry. Results will be published online at www.bravado.co.nz and along with the winning poems in Bravado 8. Bravado 7 is on sale now. Check out cover and contents on the website.
