Poetry Contest

Create a visual poem about travel.

This is our visual poetry monthly competition for August 2021. 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 write a poem about travelling and holiday experiences. At a time when travel has been restricted by Covid-19 for so long, I thought it would be nice to dream or reminisce about travel.

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:

Why social media? It's a great way to reach a broader audience and get new people interested in poetry.
