Major competition for UK poets includes “Poetry in Film” category

It was recently brought to my attention that the Out-Spoken Prize For Poetry 2018 includes Poetry in Film among its three categories (the other two being Page Poetry and Performance Poetry).

This category is for those who wish to submit poetry films. Pieces must not exceed the ten-minute time limit and the film must include the poem either being read by a narrator or have it featured as subtitles.

Note that this contest is only open to poets residing in the UK. The deadline is March 2 and the judges are Inua Ellams, Selena Godden, Akala, Caroline Bird, and Caleb Femi. Click through for complete guidelines and a submission form.
