Poetry Competition for Adults

In 2018, The Exmoor Society decided to reintroduce a poetry competition as part of its 60th anniversary celebrations in recognition that Exmoor has long been an inspiration for artists and writers – especially poets.  We were surprised  and delighted at the interest created and consequently we have decided to hold the competition annually.

The competition is open to anyone aged over 16 years-of-age for original poems inspired by any aspect of Exmoor – be it topical, historical, archaeological, literary, recreational, spiritual or relating to flora or fauna, dark skies, landscape, etc.

1st Prize – £75
2nd Prize – £50
3rd Prize – £25

The 2020 competition is now over but if you are interested in the Terms & Conditions please click here.
