Hi fellow literati,
It’s time again! EGC is calling again for nominations of Poets (both spoken and written) whom we feel deserves commendation for poetry in the year 2013.
If you want to see last year list, please Click
In order to get all poets who deserve commendation on the list, we encourage you to nominate as many poets you can.
Nominations not sent here will not be counted. Also endeavour to give reasons why you nominate/rank them the way you did: what we are doing is simply praise the nominees for their efforts in the outgoing year. We also implore you to make search on who you nominate before nominating and tell us briefly about what they/their poetry did in year 2013, to avoid an issue from last year where some nominees were actually not poets- though they are writers. The following might help you in giving nominations:
i. -Who is a poet?
ii. -How deep is his/her poetry?
iii. - How original is the person?
iv. -Any contribution to poetry in 2013?
v. - Is he/she a performance/written poet, or does both well?
Someone asked that we give gifts to the Top 10 Poets on the list this year… We are working on that, and we welcome anyone who wishes to partner with us on it. There may also be gift for one person (via a raffle) who is able to nominate as number 1, the poet that will eventually be number one this year.
For further enquiries please call +2347034198264 or +2348176041813. Deadline for all nominations to come in is 13th December 2013. Let the nominations begin!
O.B., CEO, EGC.
