The Cha International Poetry Prize is now open for entries! There is no fee to enter this contest and it is open to ALL poets.

This is a themed contest and all poems entered “Each poem must be a translation (loosely defined) of a text (loosely defined) from/about Hong Kong or China, written originally in English or Chinese, into a poem that is about contemporary Hong Kong.” Per the Cha Facebook page, “Writers are asked to write NEW poems in response to or updating or in dialogue with, etc. existing texts. ‘Translation’ is loosely defined here.”

This contest was created in collaboration with PEN Hong Kong to celebrate the tenth anniversary issue of Cha and to mark the twentieth anniversary of Hong Kong’s handover.
