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 firstname.lastname@example.org or send SSAE to Kaye Hubner
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 Poems must be the original work of the entrant, previously unpublished and not under consideration elsewhere.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.
