In a collaboration between The Poetry Society and artist Alastair Cook, the winning poems of the National Poetry Competition 2014 have been reimagined as filmpoems. You can view the winning poems on our website, and all eleven films will tour festivals and events around the country.
The National Poetry Competition is one of the world’s biggest competitions for single poems, with a first prize of £5,000. You can find out more, and explore past winners, on our website.
