Welcome to our Humour Verse Competition! Now in its third year. There is a scarcity of humour verse competitions with worthwhile prize money, even though there are huge numbers of people who like to write and read funny poems. So we at Flash 500 are rather proud of this one, which has grown into a must-enter competition for writers of humour verse.
What are we looking for? Any form of humour will be accepted, in any style, but the content must be original and it has to make us smile. Anything from a limerick to a poem of 32 lines in length is accepted.
The competition will be run quarterly with closing dates matching the Flash 500 competition: 31st March, 30th June, 30th September and 31st December. The results will be announced within six weeks of closing date and the three winning entries each quarter will be published on this website.
Entry fee: £3 for the first poem, £2.50 for each poem thereafter
Prizes will be awarded as follows:
First: £150 plus publication in Words with JAM
Payment options and entry instructions can be found on the Competition Entry Page
