Stephen Spender Youth Prize 2022

An annual competition for poetry in translation, with three age categories: 14-and-under, 16-and-under, and 18-and-under. Entrants must be UK or Irish citizens or residents, or pupils at a British school overseas. Translate into English any poem from any language.

Young people can enter the prize themselves, or teachers can treat the competition as a class project and submit multiple students' entries at once, using the bulk submission pages.

(three winners in each category, each receiving:)
18-and-under: £150
16-and-under: £100
14-and-under: £75

All winning entries will be published in the 2022 Stephen Spender Prize booklet and on the organisation's website.
