Cash Prize For Voters

Vote winner

One lucky participant in a poetry competition stands to win a £100 prize without writing a single verse – all they need to do is vote.

The winner will be selected at random from the online votes cast to determine the top three winning poems entered into the competition organised by Chapter One Promotions.

As for the poets, they stand to win £1000 for the top prize, with second and third winners scooping £500 and £250 respectively. There is a £5 entry fee per poem, which must be previously unpublished.

“We are looking for original and unpublished poems that vividly create a moment in time, evoke an emotion or just entertain,” said a spokesperson. “The form and content of the poem is open, allowing you to tap into your creative resourcefulness and not be hindered. Our only stipulation is that the poem be no more than 30 lines long.”

Judging will be carried out by Bridgport Poetry Competition winner, the renowned poet and artist Linda Lee Welch. She will select 20 ‘finalists’ from the entries to be displayed on Chapter One Promotion’s website. The final prizewinners will be selected by popular vote by the public visiting the site and casting their votes online.

The deadline is as 12am on 1 June. Voting will take place between the 1st to the 15th July, with the lucky voter earning a nifty hundred quid.
