1st Annual BIKER POETRY Contest
in celebration of The Show’s 30th Anniversary
We know you have motorcycling in your heart and it pulses through your veins. Put your passion into words in our 1st annual Toronto International Biker Poetry Contest. Selected entrants will be invited to read their poetry live, on stage, Saturday, April 6th, 2019 at the Toronto International Centre.
If you’ve got a poem to share with fellow riders, we invite you to submit it in one of our 3 author categories; Biker Men, Biker Ladies, and Biker Kids. Our selection committee will choose the top 3 in each category and those authors will be invited to the SPRING SHOW, as our guest, to recite their poem on stage. One winner in each category will be chosen by a judging panel and/or audience reaction and each will win a cash prize plus their winning poem will be posted to the SPRING SHOW’s web-site along with the author’s photo.
Subject matter must relate to motorcycling in some way – Your love of motorcycles and riding them, people, family, the mechanics of it, clubs, rallies, motorcycle travel & adventure, etc. And no, your poem does not have to rhyme.
Each person may submit up to 3 poems. As this is a family Show we ask that no obscene words be used. Mild language is permitted for artistic impact but we may ask you to edit anything we deem unsuitable for public recitation. You may also submit a photo of yourself, either a head shot or a shot of you with your motorcycle. This may be used in advance media promotions by us, and all finalists will be required to supply a photo if they haven’t already done so.
Submit your entries to: email@example.com
Your poem can be in the body of your email or attached as a document, and
• Tell us which category you are entering
• Include a photo of yourself (optional – see terms and conditions)
• Include your full name in the email or on the document if attaching
• Tell us you agree to the terms and conditions posted on this site
Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to
