For our final competition we asked you to write us a poem in response to any one of the videos from the project.
To celebrate the truly global nature of The Poetry Project, we ran three parallel competitions with partners in the USA, and the Netherlands as well as with Poetry Ireland in Dublin.
With heartfelt thanks to all who entered. We were overwhelmed with the response, and it has been a very difficult set of descisions for the various judging teams. We have all really enjoyed reading the exciting and inspiring responses to the videos on the Poetry Project.
