Panodyssey writing contest : From mind to paper ✍
Poetry under the spotlight !
Panodyssey put together its first challenge on the theme of poetry and everyone is welcome to participate. How ? Nothing could be easier! To participate, all you have to do is publish your poem in one of your Creative Rooms, remembering to include the hashtag associated with the category you have chosen for the contest.
You can post more than one poem but only one poem per posting is allowed. You can enter several categories for free depending on your inspiration.
We would like to remind you that only people over the age of fifteen are allowed to publish on Panodyssey, unless they have parental consent, which must be carefully sent to our team at: firstname.lastname@example.org
1. For this first challenge of the year, the five categories proposed are :
Prize for the best poem chosen by Panodyssey readers
Sponsor’s award Nicolas Grenier, writer and poet, on the theme of School
Sponsor's award Mélodie Ducoeur on the theme of Heart
Sponsor's award Lorenzo Soccavo, writer and researcher, on the theme of The Crossing
Prize for the best slam 🎶 chosen and awarded by the musician and composer Majid Bekkas
You can participate alone or in collaboration with other writers.
There will be two winning poems for each prize: one poem written by a solo author & one poem written collaboratively.
You can write as many poems as you like per category.
If you choose the collaborative poem - and we encourage you to do so - it is essential to carefully specify the role of each contributor in your project after inviting them into the Panodyssey editor.
For example, write at the bottom of the poem :
Paule Veber wrote a poem entitled “Abundance” published here.
Maurice Veber, Paule's grandfather and an accomplished artist, illustrated his granddaughter's poem with an original illustration that you can see below the poem.
Jean-Bernard Ravel, a classmate of Paule's, who is passionate about music, recorded the poem in audio with his voice to make an audio podcast that you can listen to here.
The winners will be contacted by the Panodyssey team after the end of the competition to tell them the good news.
As far as the readers' prize is concerned, the readers are the ones who vote on Panodyssey through likes. The more likes and comments you get on your poem, the more chances you have to be selected. This prize will be awarded to the poem that has been most appreciated by the readers, provided that the publication is serious (we give ourselves the right to exclude from the competition any trolls or inappropriate content even if the publication has been awarded a majority of likes).
In addition, the content published for this competition must be original (text, image, audio if applicable) in order to enhance the value of the creation. This competition allows all styles of poetry: sonnet, haiku, free verse, calligram... There is no limit to the length of your writing.
2. The dates of the “Mind to Pen” contest
Authors can enter the competition from January 14th, 2022 until March 1st, 2022. The date of the publication on Panodyssey will be used as the reference date.
3. How to reference your entry on Panodyssey?
