Poetry Contest

For all poems spoken!

Hello, and welcome to the "Spoken Word of the Month" to be featured in the DUP 'Spoken Word of the Month Hall of Fame', as well as across DU's social networking pages!

You have [i]three weeks to nominate your favourite spoken word pieces. Because this month is beginning a few days late, you will only have TWO weeks to nominate so we can get back on schedule. [/i]

Please note the following when making nominations:

1. Self nominations are not accepted.

2. Until this comp is established, there is no limit to the number of nominations that any one person can make. However, you can’t nominate more than one poem per individual.

3. No DUPLICATES. If someone nominates the same poem the entry will be deleted. If you like it that much wait and vote for it!

4. Any genre except erotica. This is a also a Facebook feature, and we must adhere to their guidelines.  Cursing is acceptable, but keep it minimal.

5. Any member who is banned or disables their account PRIOR to the win will be automatically disqualified.

6. One win per member per 12 months calendar year. If you win in February of 2021, you are not eligible to win again until February 2022.

Any nominated member who wishes to opt out of the competition may do so by messaging me or the member who nominated you.

NB: To find spoken-word poems on DUP there are 3 different possibilities:

1). Click on any avatar -> Read Poems -> and spoken word poems are identified with a camera icon on the been bar at the bottom of the poem (often also have a picture)
2). Click on ‘Poems’ -> *latest Poems -> Sort Poems -> Spoken-Word Poems
3). Click on ‘Spoken Word’ and you have a choice 5 sections to browse through (Live Poetry Slam/Performance Poetry/Poetry Readings/Film Poetry/Audio Poems). The last category (music) is not appropriate for this comp.


Nomination Duration is three weeks followed by a week of site voting!

It was at this point, due to voting backlog that this competition would be held bi-monthly, beginning in September 2020. Unfortunately, Josh was unable to fulfill that due to personal reasons. We anticipate run this comp monthly unless a lack of participation dictates bi-monthly.

Unlike the other two competitions ( Poem of the Month & New Member of the Month ) the voting in this competition is NOT anonymous; therefore, to create a fair competition platform for our spoken word artists, this comp exists.

If any member would like to assume responsibility as host/ess for this competion, please message me and I'll walk you through it. <3

I couldn't vote because I nominated all of them! Well, I could've voted for myself, but hey. . .somehow that felt vaguely wrong.
