Just been informed about this very interesting poetry competition run as part of the Poetry on the Lake Festival from Lake Orta, Northern Italy by Gabriel Griffin. Carol Ann Duffy, UK Poet Laureate, is the patron of the festival and this year the judges are Gillian Clarke (Welsh National Poet), Carole Baldock (editor of Orbis), and Christopher North.
Going through the list of previous winners and commended poets I came across the name of Peter Goulding - I should really say inevitably, as Peter seems to figure in the business end of a whole heap of competitions in recent years. The awards are made in Autumn and they also produce an antholgy of winning and commended poems.
The closing date is 12th April and all the details you need to enter are here.
