The £500 Out-Spoken poetry prize has four separate categories, and five judges – Sabrina Mahfouz, Jacob Sam-La Rose, Niall O’Sullivan, Helen Mort, and Ira Lightman. The four categories are: innovation in poetry; political poetry; poetry performance; and poetry film. The last two are video submissions only. The overall winner, plus category winners, will be revealed at a prizegiving night on 24 November at Out-Spoken’s venue at The Forge, Camden, with Brian Patten reading and announcing the winners.
