Blue Mountain Arts

Announces Its Twenty-eighth Biannual Poetry Card Contest
Deadline: June 30, 2016

1st prize: $300 * 2nd prize: $150 * 3rd prize: $50

In addition, the winning poems will be displayed on our website sps.com.

Poetry Contest Guidelines:

  1. Poems can be rhyming or non-rhyming, although we find that non-rhyming poetry reads better.
  2. We suggest that you write about real emotions and feelings and that you have some special person or occasion in mind as you write.
  3. Poems are judged on the basis of originality and uniqueness.
  4. English-language entries only, please.
  5. Enter as often as you like!

Poetry Contest Rules

All entries must be the original creation of the submitting author. All rights to the entries must be owned by the author and shall remain the property of the author. The author gives permission to Blue Mountain Arts, Inc. to publish and display the entry on the Web (in electronic form only) if the entry is selected as a winner or finalist. Winners will be contacted within 45 days of the deadline date. Contest is open to everyone except employees of Blue Mountain Arts and their families. Void where prohibited.

How to Submit

Simply complete the Poetry Contest Submission Form, or if you prefer, you may send your submission via snail mail* to:

Blue Mountain Arts Poetry Card Contest,
P.O. Box 1007, Dept. E,
Boulder, CO 80306.

Good luck!

Talk tomorrow,

  1. I saw this contest listed somewhere last year, but I didn’t enter– I felt like my poems wouldn’t be a fit, and I still don’t.

    Do you have an idea of what exactly they’re looking for? I just get the impression that they’re looking for something generic, cheesy or both.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing, Kathy!
