Winchester Poetry Prize 2021

First Prize: £1,000

2nd Prize: £500

3rd Prize: £250

A prize is also available for the best poem written by a Hampshire-based poet.

​Judge: Jacqueline Saphra

Entry fee: £5 for first poem, £4 for subsequent poems

Closing Date: 31 July 2021

Entries for the Winchester Poetry Prize 2021 are now open.

We will hold a special prize-giving event on Saturday 9 October 2021. We are planning for this event to be a live event in Winchester. However, if there are restrictions still in place which prevent this, the event will move online. Winning and commended poems will also be published in a competition anthology.


Winchester Poetry Prize is generously sponsored by:

Best poem by a poet living in Hampshire will receive a prize kindly donated by Warren & Son

Thanks to the generosity of the 2020 winner, Lewis Buxton, there are a limited number of free entries available for low-income writers to whom an entry fee would be a barrier. All the free entries have now been claimed.
