Poetry Contest

Create a visual poem related to horses.

This is our visual poetry monthly competition for March 2020. The winner, and any runners up, will get their poems featured on our official social media accounts.

Create a poem as an image.

This month's competition is to create a visual poem about horses. Whether you're a 'horse person' or not, the challenge is to celebrate these powerful and majestic creatures and all they have done for mankind. You don't have to write a poem specifically about horses; it could be about something completely different, but using metaphors related to them.

RULES
- 50 word limit
- Your image must include the full text of your poem
- Don't use photos or artwork which are copyrighted by someone else.
- Ensure the text of the poem is large enough, clear and readable even on small devices like mobile phones.
- You agree by entering to let us post your image on our various social media accounts (Instagram etc.). You will be credited by username in the caption.
- Max two entries per person.

HOW TO ENTER
- Create an image with your poem text. This can be plain, or you can include image(s) or a background. Be creative.
- If it's a new poem, then post it on DU using "submit poem". You will need to submit the text of the poem (you'll add the image afterwards).
- Once you have submit your poem, use the "Add Multimedia" button under your poem text to attach the image, selecting the "visual poem" option when submitting the image.
- Use the "Enter Competition" button on this thread, and select your visual poem.

NEED HELP MAKING AN IMAGE?
No problem, we have a group for that:

Little Ponies

We remain too little to ride
And too wild to care..
Our only longing,  
To shed our winter's hair...
