    Brunel International African Poetry Prize 2020

    The Brunel International African Poetry Prize is a major annual poetry prize aimed at the development, celebration and promotion of poetry from Africa. Now in its eighth year, the Prize is sponsored by Brunel University London and supported by the African Poetry Book Fund.

    Each entrant must submit 10 poems to be eligible, no more and no less. Only poems written in English are accepted. Poems translated into English are also accepted with a percentage of the prize going to the translator.

    Only poets who have not yet had a full-length poetry book published are eligible. Poets who have self-published poetry books or had chapbooks and pamphlets published are allowed to submit for this prize.

    There is no entry fee.


    Open to poets who were born in Africa, or who are nationals of an African country, or whose parents are African.


    The winner will receive 3000 GBP (approx. 3,680 USD).
