The Cardiff International Poetry Competition is open for submissions and Rhian’s a judge!


Wales Book of the Year winner, Rhian Edwards, will be judging this year’s Cardiff International Poetry Competition along side Samantha Wayne Rhydderch and Lemn Sissay.

The competition offers one of the largest monetary prizes for a poetry competition of its kind with a first prize of £5,000. The second placed entry will receive £500 and third £250. Five runners-up will receive £50 each. All entries to the competition will be judged anonymously, so this is a great opportunity to have your poetry judged on its own merits, whether you are first time poet or an experienced wordsmith.

Entries close on 14th March. For more information or to download an entry form
