Every year, author-zigo.com provides the opportunity for people across the world to tell their stories in the form of poetry. As such, we call on you to submit one or more poems under the headings: justice, rights (human rights), freedoms and liberties.
We understand millions of people around the world, especially in the less advanced countries, are living under repressive, authoritarian regimes, where there is no freedom of speech and the rights of minorities trampled upon. In these regimes, human rights abuses are on the rise and citizens have little or no access to justice.
This is an opportunity for you to use your voice and pen, in the form of poetry, to create awareness about your predicament. You can decide to participate in a contest or submit a poem, without enrolling.
Every year, starting January 2019, author-zigo.com will organise a poetry contest.
Anyone, especially those who want to use poetry to create awareness of their predicament.
The project will initially be sponsored by Author Zigo. We hope that as many people become aware and interested, author-zigo.com will solicit for sponsorship from friends and organisations. At least three winners will take a cash prize home. The initial prize will be 500 US dollars.
No. Participation is free for everyone, anywhere. However, if submissions shoot up drastically, a small fee shall be charged during the next contests, for administrative works only.
A group of qualified men and women, who are experts in poetry and willing to offer their services. Do you want to be an examiner? Let us know.
Winners shall receive their cash prizes and the 10 best submissions will be published on our website and on YouTube.
