The Bookhabit Poetry Contest is accepting submissions. This is a weekly contest with three rounds:
Round 1: Ends November 2, 2008. 50 winners each week will proceed to round 2.
Round 2: Registered Bookhabit users will select 50 finalists to move on to round 3.
Round 3: A judging panel will pick the final winners – 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category.
The contest is judged by the New Zealand Poetry Society. Prizes include $500 for 1st place, $200 for 2nd place, and $100 for 3rd place in each section. Additionally, there will be an overall winner who will be awarded $500. A People’s Performance Choice will win $500 as well. All prizes will be awarded in U.S. dollars.
