We are inviting Sri Lankans at home and abroad to take part in a poetry competition to mark the decades of enforced disappearances the country has experienced.

  • Entries may be submitted in English, Tamil or Sinhala from any place in the world; you do not have to be a poet to enter.
  • Writers must be Sri Lankans living in the country or who have emigrated in the past 20 years.
  • All entrants must be 14 years of age or older when they submit their entry to the Competition. Entrants under the age of 18 must obtain written parental or guardian consent to enter and claim any prize. The Competition Administrators may ask the winner to provide proof of age.

Deadline 31 December 2015.
