I thought you might be interested in the competition we are running. It is designed to showcase performance and written poetry. US$2600 of prizes, free entry. All categories, ages and countries. There is an online written section and a performance section, and all you need to do is link to your youtube video. 50 entries through to Round 2 each week. Full details Bookhabit Competition
Good luck!
