Australian Book Review welcomes entries in the sixteenth Peter Porter Poetry Prize. The Porter Prize, which is worth a total of AU$9,000, is open until midnight, 1 October 2019.

The Porter Prize is one of Australia’s most lucrative and respected awards for poetry. It honours the life and work of the great Australian poet Peter Porter (1929–2010), an honoured contributor to ABR for many years. All poets writing in English are eligible to enter.

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 2020 issue and the winner will be announced at a ceremony later that month.
