Poe-Tography Winners announced

Hi there to all,

The moment we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. Yes, it’s time to reveal our competition winners for our first ever Poe-tography competition. If you’ve checked out our website (and we know you have been) and sent us your preferences then a big thank you. We’ve had some great debates in the office as to what our final three should be but let me tell that our team agreed independently on the short list (that’s without conferring) and we came back with fairly similar results. This pleased us no end. We’re not going to divulge how we decided upon the final three but just to say there was some debate over one of our finalists and that’s because we all liked both options. In the end it came down to how well the poem worked with the photograph. It was a poe-tography competition after all!!!

So impressed were we by the overall entries that we’ve decided to work on a Poe-tography anthology. This is our way of promoting all those contributors to our competition. So everyone’s a winner! Many of us poets need to get our work noticed whether it be in publications or performances. Here at I Poetry TV we promised that we would do just that with workshops, training and events. This event signifies for us the first of many. We’ll keep you posted for we are currently in talks about our other ideas which will incorporate the much promised workshop and training elements. It’s on its way folks just be ready!!!

The identities of our winners can be found on our website here:

so what are you waiting for check it out directly after you’ve finished reading our newsletter special!

If you enjoyed this competition, the work it's produced and you want to get the latest information on the upcoming anthology which feature the work of our other great entrants plus some I poetry TV originals, Why not become a fan of Poe-Tography here

On a final note, as promised 10% of the competition proceeds will be donated to the Haiti Earthquake Appeal. We remember the devastating earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale struck Haiti on 12 January 2010, ending the lives of around 200,000 and affecting over one million people. Three months on our support serves to illustrate that the lives of people affected by disaster are still within our minds and our thoughts as they continue on their journey of survival.

Until next time we thank you
I poetry TV

  1. I'm glad I found your blog, site, profile at FB! Although I don't consider myself a poet (I just write some poems for my books), I'm always glad to see a good poem or 2! There's something wrong with you site though... It doesn't work now... hope soon the problem will be over? I'll be very glad to participate in some of your contests! ;) Best wishes! Keep the good work going! Let the wonderful noise of the sea always sounds in your ears! (a greeting of the water dragons'hunters - my Tale Of The Rock Pieces).

    Love and happiness will be around,
    as all the chains will disappear,
    and Mountaineers will climb their mount
    and there won't be any tear!
