THE MOTH’S €10,000 POETRY PRIZE: ENTRIES
ENTRIES ARE NOW BEING ACCEPTED FOR ONE OF THE WORLD’S RICHEST POETRY PRIZES, THE NEWLY NAMED MOTH POETRY PRIZE. THE WINNER OF THE 2017 PRIZE WILL RECEIVE €10,000 (APPROXIMATELY US$11,700), WITH THREE RUNNERS-UP TO RECEIVE €1,000 EACH.
The Moth Poetry Prize, formerly known as the Ballymaloe International Poetry Prize, is for a single, original poem that has not been published in any form (including being self-published or published online). The prize is open to all poets, both established and emerging, and there are no restrictions on nationality or citizenship. An entry fee of €12 is payable and multiple entries are accepted.
The poems will be judged by Daljit Nagra, a past winner of the Forward Prize and Poet in Residence for BBC Radio 4. The judging takes place anonymously; Nagra will only learn the identities of the shortlisted poets after the selection of the winning poems. Poems may be any length, any style or on any subject, and there is no line limit.
Entries for The Moth Poetry Prize 2017 close on Sunday 31 December. The winning poems will be published in Spring 2018 edition of The Moth. Visit The Moth website for full entry conditions.
