The Planet in Peril Poetry and Photography Competition is open until April 28, 2019.
Fly on the Wall Press has teamed up with WWF, The Climate Coalition, Dr Michelle Cain (Oxford University), former Derbyshire Poet Laureate, Helen Mort, and wildlife photographer, Emily Gellard, to create an anthology, Planet in Peril. The anthology will combine photography of endangered species and delicate ecosystems, with poetry designed to increase public awareness of the complex issues surrounding climate change.
They are looking for poetry submissions which explore personal connections to the planet and reflections on the damage inflicted on it by humanity.
First prize is £50. Commended poems will be featured in an anthology.
Entry fee: £5 for adults, £3 for students and low wage earners, and free for under 18s.
