THE YEAR AHEAD FORM THE MOTH



The Caterpillar Poetry Prize
We’re delighted to announce that John Hegley will be judging this year’s Caterpillar Poetry Prize. Enter a poem (for 7–11 year olds) and be in with a chance to win €1,000 and be published in the summer issue of The Caterpillar.

The Moth Art Prize
Now in its second year, the prize, which consists of €1,000 and a 2-week stay at the new Moth Retreat, is for figurative or representational art. Last year’s winner, David Piddock, had this to say about it: ‘A lot of credit should go to The Moth, always wonderfully idiosyncratic and beautifully designed, for launching the prize and responding to figurative painting, largely ignored by the contemporary art scene. We have nothing like it in the UK.’








The Moth Retreat
If you’re an artist or a writer, why not treat yourself to a week away in rural Ireland? ‘For anyone looking for somewhere soothing to complete (or indeed start) their magnum opus; somewhere that is rustic but cosy, pared back but comfortable, and full of eclectic touches, witty and warm; this could be the spot.’ Irish Times

The Moth Short Story Prize
Now in its sixth year, The Moth Short Story Prize has become an important date on the literary calendar. And we’re delighted to have the wonderful Belinda McKeon judging this year’s prize –worth €3,000 to the winner, with two marvellous runner-up prizes of a 2-week stay at Circle of Misse in France (inc. €250 travel stipend) and €1,000.
