I am administrative officer for The Ron Pretty Poetry Prize this year and am looking forward to receiving a good swag of entries. Do think of entering.

First Prize: $5000; Second Prize: $1500; Third Prize: $750

The prize will be awarded to a single poem of up to 30 lines, and is open to anyone over the age of 18 years, including overseas applicants.

Only online submissions will be accepted:

The prize is named in honour of the distinguished Australian poet Ron Pretty, who founded Five Islands Press in 1986. Ron published over 230 books of poetry by Australian poets, before retiring from Five Islands Press in 2007. Since this time, FIP has maintained its commitment to publishing fine Australian poetry, including the work of emerging and established poets.
