About the prize

Why a wetlands poetry prize?

Wetlands are special places.  Occupying the space between land and water, they’re home to a huge range of plants and animals, and provide many people with food and water.

This prize seeks to raise an awareness and appreciation of wetlands in all of their beauty and complexity.
