The Accenti Poetry Contest was launched in 2020, and joins Accenti’s two other very popular contests: the Accenti Writing Contest, launched in 2005, which invites submissions for original and unpublished prose texts (short stories, nonfiction, creative nonfiction); and the Accenti “Capture an Italian Moment” Photo Contest, launched in 2007.

Like the writing and photo contests, the Accenti Poetry Contest offers a top prize of $1000 and three runner-up prizes of $100 each, as well as publication.

These three very popular initiatives together generate hundreds of entries each year, attracting many established professionals as well as emerging artists whose exposure through Accenti has helped them build on their artistic profile.

Since 2005, the Accenti contests have awarded nearly $50,000 in prizes to winners from all over the world.
