    A new, $50,000 prize aims to shine a light on English-language poets around the globe.

    [photoright=http://jpicforum.info/forum/images/articlepics/mon-prize-logo.jpg]The Montreal Prize is a first-of-its-kind global poetry competition awarding $50,000 for one poem. Our international jury of ten distinguished poets from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas will select the top 50 entries. This shortlist will be published in our groundbreaking global poetry anthology. And from that shortlist our prize judge, Andrew Motion, will select the winner of the 2011 prize. [/photoright]

    Entry Requirements

    • All entries must be in English (we accept and encourage all English dialects)

    • It’s OK to use a few non-English words and phrases

    • Poems must be no more than 40 lines long (not including title, a brief epigraph, blank lines, etc.)

    • All entrants must be the age of majority at the time of entry. You can go here for an unofficial list of the age of majority in different countries. Please check our Terms & Conditions for more details.

    • No simultaneous submissions (i.e. don’t submit your poem(s) anywhere else – to preserve anonymity)

    • You do not have to be a published poet to enter!

    • All entries must be unpublished and original works of the author (to preserve anonymity and keep a focus on new work)

    • A poem is considered to be published according to the criteria in our Terms & Conditions

    • Translations are not eligible. Poetry in translation is an art of its own and would require a different structure to ensure a fair handling.

    • International Montreal Poetry Prize directors, officers, and employees, representatives or agents, including the editors and prize judge, as well as any of their immediate family members or persons with whom they are domiciled, are not eligible to enter

    • Early Entry Deadline: 11:59pm Coordinated Universal Time on April 22 2011
    • Final Entry Deadline: 11:59pm Coordinated Universal Time on July 8 2011

    • You have to pay a fee for each poem you enter for the Montreal International Poetry Prize. Your participation helps to make the Montreal Prize a reality!

    • Fees are lower for entries from ‘developing’ nations

    • This distinction is based on the UN Human Development Index, which you can check here

    • Countries not in the UN’s ‘Very High’ category get the lower fee

    • If you want to submit more than one poem, each additional entry after your first one is entered at a discounted rate. You can submit as many additional entries as you like!

    • All fees are in Canadian dollars (CAD)
