There are three categories:
Silver Wyvern (all forms, max 42 lines).
Short poems (max 10 lines).
Formal (for traditional set rhyme and/or metre patterns only, max 40 lines).
The best poem in any category written on the theme of ‘cinema’ will receive £100.
Fred Johnston is the Silver Wyvern adjudicator. Kevin Bailey adjudicates the short and formal poems.
Prizes range from €100 to €500. Interestingly, all fees are donations to the organisation and events of Poetry on the Lake, so while there is a suggested amount, they add: “If you genuinely can’t afford the fee, just send what you can. Of course, if your bank manager kisses the ground when you walk in, please donate generously.”
