Academi Cardiff International Poetry Competition [Wales]:
2005 Winners Announced

Gwyneth Lewis, Wales' new National Poet, announced the winners of the 2005 Cardiff International Poetry Competition at a ceremony during Academi's recent BayLit Festival. She said 'The winners brought their visions into sharp rhythmic, metaphorical or imaginative focus. Congratulations to the top three.'

The winner, Canadian poet Linda Rogers, flew in to Cardiff to accept the £5,000 winner's cheque in person. Her winning poem, 'He Saw the Pale', is a deeply human poem about the 2004 Tsunami tragedy. Second prize went to Robert Butler from Kent for his poem 'A Sumerian Tablet', which explores the span of writing across history. Third prize went to Gareth Jones for 'Unreel', which uses the idea of a split cassette reel to represent unheard voices.

Russell Collier, a native of the Rhondda who now lives and works in the capital, won the special Cardiff Prize of £800 for a poem about the city. His 'Bob In Cardiff' evocatively mingles music with the sights of Cardiff at night.
