This contest looks pretty cool. Citizens for Global Solutions is holding a virtual poetry slam video contest. Video yourself and upload it to their blog. They ask for a focus on the environment. I'm not sure what the other guidelines are.
Cash! First place - $500; second place - $250; third place - $100
Top entries will be posted on our website blog on a rolling basis as we receive them. So, hurry and send in your video. The contest deadline is October 15th.
It's a good idea. I wonder how much poetry performance is on YouTube already? Let's take a look, with a search on "poetry" with the highest ranked video at the top.
