The Levitt Indigenous Poetry Prize (“LIPP”) is a biennial poetry prize for the best poems on a personal, social or political subject concerning Indigenous Australians or Torres Strait Islanders.
The inaugural LIPP will be awarded in October 2021. There are three prizes up for grabs:
- $10,000 for first prize
- $6,000 for second prize
- $4,000 for third prize
All submissions must be respectful and sensitive to the integrity of First Nation Australians (or Torres Strait Islander) people and culture.
There is no age or ethnicity criteria for entries – though contributions by young entrants will be evaluated by taking into account the entrant’s level of maturity and educational development.
