SECOND ANNUAL VISPO CONTEST

Judges: Shloka Shankar & Robin Smith

 

We received close to 90 visual poem entries this year from over half a dozen countries. They ranged from quirky to experimental to thought-provoking and some really pushed the boundaries with their conceptual pieces. It was a pleasure to see how our participants utilized image and words to create new ways of expression. We have chosen our top three winners, two Honourable Mentions, and 13 others for the Vispo Gallery. Congratulations and thank you for sharing your creations with us. Until next year, happy creating!
