2019 ACU Prize for Poetry now open



Entries are now open for one of Australia’s richest poetry competitions offering $18,000 in prizes.

The 2019 ACU Prize for Poetry will be awarded for outstanding poetry with the theme Solace, reflecting on Anne Frank’s supposition:

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God … I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”

The competition is open to Australian residents, including international students currently studying at an Australian university.

Entered poems must be unpublished (including on any website or blog), must not have won any other competition, and must not be under consideration by any publisher, literary journal or for any other prize.

This year’s judge is poet, distinguished academic, critic and generous contributor to literary culture, Emeritus Professor Chris Wallace-Crabbe who is one of the best-known figures in Australia’s literary community.

1st Prize: $10,000
2nd Prize: $5000
3rd Prize: $3000

Entries close: Monday 8 July 2019
Shortlisted, commended and winning poems announced: Tuesday 10 September 2019 in Melbourne

Find out more about how to submit via Australian Catholic University.

Good luck to everyone entering this excellent competition.

The annual ACU Prize for Poetry aims to support Australian poets and to continue the rich Catholic Church tradition of patronising the arts.. The prize is one of the most prestigious and lucrative poetry prizes in Australia, receiving significant media coverage and drawing the attention of the nation’s literary community. Each year there is a different theme that reflects the University’s mission, and since its inception in 2013 the prize has attracted approximately 1,000 entrants from around Australia and the world. The theme for the 2018 ACU Prize for Poetry was Empathy.

Distinguished poet, academic and critic, Professor Christopher Wallace-Crabbe, chairs the judging panel, with winners announced at the University’s awards night. The ACU Poetry Chapbook – a collection of all shortlisted and winning poems – is published every year and launched on the same occasion. The cover of the Chapbook is designed by a talented visual arts and design student from ACU.

    The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God… I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”
    Anne Frank

Finals Judge Professor Chris Wallace-Crabbe

Poet, distinguished academic and critic, generous contributor to literary culture, Emeritus Professor Chris Wallace-Crabbe is one of the best known figures in Australia’s literary community and also enjoys a wider reputation in the international world of letters.

He began publishing poetry while an undergraduate, producing many volumes and winning awards and prizes, including the Grace Leven Poetry Prize in 1985 for The Amorous Cannibal, the Dublin Prize for the Arts and Sciences in 1987 and the Philip Hodgins Memorial Medal in 2002.

His Selected Poems: 1956-1994 won both the Dinny O’Hearn Poetry Prize and the Book of the Year Award in the 1995 Age Book of the Year Awards. In 2011 he was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia, and last year he was awarded the prestigious Melbourne Prize for Literature in “recognition of his outstanding contribution to Australian literature and cultural and intellectual life”.
