the Internet. We also obtain the right to republish the work in our own
anthologies, either online or in print, without additional compensation

additional compensation for this work, the original prize payment shall be
considered as an advance on future payments.

necessary at any time, with utmost respect to the artists, to ensure that

The Winners
First Place:$50 CAD
Top Calgary Poet: $50 CAD

Contest participants will be notified of the results within three months of the
contest closing.

If a poet living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada wins First Place, they also win
Top Calgary Poet, for a total prize of $100 CAD. In that case, an additional
award of Second Place will be granted for a second poem, with a
prize of $10 CAD.

Payment will be sent within two weeks following publication, via PayPal,
email money transfer (for Canadian residents), or cheque sent via regular
post. International poets, please note: PayPal will automatically convert the
payment to your home currency and the magazine will pay all PayPal fees.
Cheques will be made out in Canadian ($CAD) funds only.

All winning poems will be published individually and featured on the main
page of
Calgary Poetry Magazine, with publication intended for late 2017.

Both winning poems will be published in print format, in letters sent to
subscribers of the
Calgary Poetry Contest.

The winning poem only will be entered into the consideration for the
Wax
Poetry and Art
Poem of the Year Contest. The award is an additional cash
prize and republication as the Poem of the Year in
Wax Poetry and Art. This
award will be given to the poem selected as the best of all contest winning
poems published in 2017, as determined by publisher and editor,
Kirk Ramdath.

Judging will be based on two criteria: Quality of writing and effectiveness
of the poem, as determined by the editor. Please edit carefully.

Writers submitting work to
Calgary Poetry Magazine assume all liability
if situations arise due to any misrepresentations on the part of the writer,
especially regarding copyright violations.
