About the Plough Prize
The Plough Prize is an annual poetry competition based at the Plough Arts Centre in North Devon - and, with the exception of a sabbatical in 2012, it has been running continuously since 2003. From the start, it has been unusual in the amount of feedback it offers its entrants.
One of the main aims of the competition has always been to support poets and encourage good new poetry. To this end, full long and short listings are available each year to entrants - on the website and, if requested, by post. The Plough Prize approach has proved popular, and the competition has grown to become an internationally respected poetry prize.
