We are pleased to announce the results of the Lupus UK International Poetry Competition judged by Jim Bennett. A successful competition that raised 180.65 for the charity. What is more, judge, Jim Bennett found many of the entries to be of very high standard, but at the end it came down to five poets.

The 2 Highly Commended poets in no particular order are CLARE FOGES for Afternoon, and TERRY JONES for Werner Herzog's documentary about the Chauvet cave paintings discovered in 1993.

The Third Prize was won by LESLEY BURT for Rhythm, Second Prize went to GILL McEVOY for The Bardsey Apple, eifel ynys enlli, and the First Prize has been won by ANNA MERYT for the poem Bulawayo.
