LAST CALL FOR LITERARY AWARDS (article first published : 2003-03-17)

South African poets have little time left to submit their collections for the prestigious Sanlam Literary Award. Sponsored by Sanlam and administered by the Grahamstown Foundation, the award offers prizes totalling R11,000.

The award has two categories - unrestricted and restricted. The unrestricted category offers a prize of R6,000 for the best original collection of poems whether or not the author has published previous collections in book form.

The restricted category will be awarded for the best collection of poems from an author whose work has not previously been published in book form, and carries a monetary value of R5,000. An entry in this category is automatically eligible for both prizes. A “collection” is defined as a minimum of 25 poems.

Only South African poets whose work is in English and is entirely original may enter this event. The competition will be judged by three adjudicators appointed by the Grahamstown Foundation and the winners will attend an awards ceremony held during the National Arts Festival (June 27 to July 5) in Grahamstown.

Entries, accompanied by an official entry form, must be submitted to the organisers before March 31. For entry forms and further information contact Terri Procter at the Sanlam Literary Awards, Grahamstown Foundation, PO Box 304, Grahamstown, 6140. Telephone 046 603 11031; fax 046 622 3082; or e-mail: naf@foundation.org.za
