Event Details

The Ginkgo Prize is an international award for poems embracing ecological themes. The Prize is funded by the Edward Goldsmith Foundation. The organizer is Poetry School in London.

Poems can be any length and follow any form. They don’t need to address a specific theme, but should in some way – thematically, structurally, linguistically or formally – investigate ecology, the environment, or the relationship between human culture and the natural world.

Poems must be written in the English language, translations are not eligible.

Poems cannot have been previously published and printed or be entered for any other prize.

The competition is open to anyone aged 18 or above.

This year’s judges are Linda Gregerson, Seán Hewitt and Karen McCarthy Woolf.
