FIRST ANNUAL VISPO CONTEST

We are extremely grateful to the 55 visual poets and artists who entered their pieces in our First Annual Vispo Contest! GRIX and I had a wonderful time going through all 93 entries and learned so much from the varied and interesting artist statements that accompanied each piece. 

The gallery below features the top three winners, two artists who received an Honourable Mention, and 19 other pieces which showcase the diversity and limitless possibilities of visual poetry as a genre. We also selected four entries to be included in Issue Twenty-One, our anniversary issue that comes out in December.
