About the competition
Australian Book Review welcomes entries for the twentieth Peter Porter Poetry Prize, which is open to all international poets from 3 July 2023 until midnight, 9 October 2023. This year the Porter Prize is worth a total of AU$10,000 – with a first prize of $6,000.
Entries must be an original single-authored poem of not more than 70 lines written in English. Poems must not have been previously published. The five shortlisted poems will be published in the January–February 2024 issue and the winner will be announced at a ceremony later that month.
