£3,000 e-book poetry prize competition
Poetic Republic has launched a new type of poetry competition, with participants as the judges and the resulting anthology being an e-book in various formats such as Kindle, iPad, etc.
Each piece of work is anonymous and participants read each other’s work, comment and vote.
There is a single poem prize of £2,000 and a portfolio (two poems) prize of £1,000. Both prizes could be won by a single person.
Entry costs £7 per poem. Closing date is 30 April. More details

This seems to me to be a much more unbiased and eclectic way of of judging poetry competitions. All too often individual judges have chosen as winners poems which most closely resemble their own style of writing.
