I had a poem included in the Aesthetica Creative Works Annual 2010 which included the selected winners in the art and writing competitions.

This year they are launching two separate prizes: the Aesthetica Art Prize and the Creative Writing Competition and publishing two separate volumes.

The Aesthetica Creative Writing Competition celebrates and champions creative writing, nurturing talent and bringing work to international attention. There are two categories for entry, Poetry and Short Fiction, and a selection of fantastic prizes including:

£500 prize money – Poetry winner.

Publication in the Aesthetica Creative Writing Annual.
Complimentary copy of the Aesthetica Creative Writing Anthology.
A selection of books from our competition partners, Bloodaxe and Vintage.

The Aesthetica Art Prize is a celebration of excellence in art from across the world. Artists working in all forms are welcome to submit work and there is an excellent selection of prizes including:

6 months’ studio rental courtesy of AWOL Studios.
