The Overland Judith Wright Prize for poetry is open:
Established in 2007, with support from the Malcolm Robertson Foundation, the Overland Judith Wright Poetry Prize for New and Emerging Poets fosters poetry by writers who have published no more than one collection of poems under their own name. It has subsequently grown to become the richest prize for emerging poets in Australia. This year, the competition will be judged by current poetry editor Peter Minter, and Overland’s incoming poetry editor (yet to be announced).
There is an entry fee of $12 for Overland subscribers, $20 for non-subscribers, and $56 to get a special discounted combo rate of an annual subscription and entry fee.
The award is open to poets who have had no more than one solo collection of their work commercially published: that is, by a publishing house with commercial distribution.
Entrants must be citizens of Australia or New Zealand or have permanent resident status in Australia or New Zealand.
Prizes are $6,000, $2,000 and $1,000 AUD respectively, for 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes!
