The 2021 BR4R Seeking Asylum Poetry Prize is now open

Ballina Region for Refugees invites you to submit up to three poems to this year’s Seeking Asylum Poetry Prize.

This year’s theme is ‘Time for a Home'.

The BR4R Seeking Asylum Poetry Prize celebrates the positive contributions that refugees make to our communities. It acknowledges the circumstances that forced them to flee their homelands and request refuge in Australia.

We welcome poems of up to 50 lines that consider the experiences, aspirations and hopes of refugees and asylums seeking a home in which to build new, meaningful and safe lives.

The 2021 BBR4R Seeking Asylum Poetry Prize takes inspiration from the #TIMEFORAHOME campaign. It is time in Australia to release all refugees from detention. It is time for a permanent resettlement solution. It is time to give our refugees a home. 

Poets may send in up to three poems. Poems can be sent until the closing date of Sunday 15th August 2021. Entry is free and is open to anyone living in Australia. BR4R especially welcomes poems from refugees and those seeking asylum in Australia.

Cash prizes will be awarded to first ($300), second ($150), and third ($50) place winners. Winning entries and selected runners-up will be published in Social Alternatives.

Further information, guidelines & conditions, and entry form are available at
