- The winners of each category will receive £1000 and both runners-up £200.
Prize-winners and shortlistees will be notified by early October 2016 and invited to an award ceremony on November 25, 2016 in Oxford.
- The competition is open to both new and established poets aged 18 and over from across the globe;
- Applicants do not have to be a published poet.
- To enter the competition, you must register and pay for your entries via the Brookes Shop, and then e-mail your poems as separate documents to [email protected]
