Adults entering on behalf of young poets 11- 17:

Young poets aged 11-12 will require a parent or guardian to give permission for the young poet to enter. This is for entrants who are entered individually. Without this permission we are not allowed to keep information about the young poet, such as contact details. This is because of new data protection rules. The parent or guardian permission form can be shared online or by post.

If you are entering on behalf of one young person, please register a new account or log into your account.

If you are entering more than one person, for example work by more than one of your own children, please use our school entry form.

Schools, libraries and youth groups:

Please use the online school entry form and include a complete list of names or unique identifying pupil number for the young poets you are entering.
