Philosophy Poetry Prize 2022

In spring 2021, the School of Philosophy and Economic Science initiated the first Philosophy Poetry Prize. Open to all young poets up to the age of 25 the prize aims to encourage and support young people in the arts through poetry.

In these uniquely challenging times, we encourage young poets to raise their voices and share a message with the world.  Thus, we are seeking poems about PEACE.

About The Philosophy Poetry Prize

As a Philosophy School we have supported and actively promoted the Arts over many decades, with notable examples being the inception and long-term hosting of Art in Action between 1977-2016 and the commission of extensive frescoes at Waterperry House. We continue to support the Arts through various new initiatives, of which the Philosophy Poetry Prize is one. This new platform is created to support and celebrate poetry that captures various truths of life with authenticity, beauty, and creativity.

Each year a theme will be advertised in spring for young poets up to the age of 25 to respond to.

The winner of the inaugural poetry prize 2021 was Molly Evans with ‘The Song’. You can see more about the 2021 competition here. 

The judges review all the submissions blindly for fairness.
