The Caterpillar Poetry Prize

Caterpillar poetry prizeThe Caterpillar is not only a beautifully produced, high quality quarterly children’s magazine featuring stories, poetry and art, but also has a rather spiffing annual poetry competition.  The prize is one thousand euros and publication in the mag.  Judging is by renowned children’s poet Chrissie Giffins.  Entry is open to anyone over 16 but the poem must not have been published or online.  Entry costs twelve euros per poem and entry details can be found here on the website.  Closing date is end of March so why not sort through those poems and give it a shot!

  1. To Whom It May Concern,

    Just to ask when will we hear the results of the Caterpillar Poetry Prize that closed on the 31st March 2018.

    Kind regards,

    1. Hi Ron, Lou here. I’ve found this on the website:

      All entrants to the competition will be notified by email by 30 April 2018, including those who have not been successful.
      The winner will be announced in June, to coincide with publication of the summer issue of The Caterpillar.

  2. It’s 10th May but I haven’t heard anything re Caterpillar Poem for Children 2018. I sent 3 entries, which were acknowledged as received, so presume not a winner.

      1. Oops – I’ve found it! Don’t know how I missed the email. Thanks for your reply.
