This is good news, Maureen!

Looks like there won't be separate sections for bush verse and free verse though - so it will be up to us to "outshine"!! ;) :D

Entries open Monday 9th August and close in September, so a little over 4 weeks to get entries in.

Their photographic section I am having trouble viewing - I'll check again after the opening date to see if it is working or not

I have tried to access the site at 1.45 pm today and their appears to be problems with it - the online submission page is not coming up on screen. I have sent an enquiry to IPF re this and wait on their response.

Once I have an answer I will let you all know.

UPDATE - Open the IPF competition page, click on Adult entry and then click F5 to refresh the page this should then open up the entry form for you to complete details and add your poem.
The photographic/ writing section may still be having issues - they have put in a new program and it has glitches. Carol at IPF is looking into that for me as well as we speak - but the main part of the program is now operational.
