The prize is open to anyone except those involved in organising the competition. Entries must be entirely the work of the entrant and must never have been published, self-published, published on any public website or broadcast, nor winning or placed in any other competition, as at 5 March 2021.

You may send as many entries as you like. Payments must be made online.

Please DO NOT write your name, age or residency on the same sheet as your poems, as they will be judged anonymously.

Enter each poem on a separate page and enclose another separate sheet with your name, address, telephone number, email address, plus the title(s) of your poems. Winners will be contacted by 5 March 2021. Winning poems will be rotated on Guernsey buses, and 9 of these poems will become part of the Poems on the Move exhibition, for no less than six months.
