National Poetry Competition UK

I don't know why I would bother entering this. The winners are real poetry heavyweights.

1st Helen Dunmore, Orange Prize winner for "The Malarkey"
2nd Ian Pindar for Mrs Beltinska in the Bath. Pindar's first collection of poetry, Emporium, will be published next year.
3rd prize of £500 was won by John Stammerstook, whose third collection is published in April, for Mr Punch in Soho.

One woman and 2 men.
Do they have a shortlist?

Judges: 2 men and a woman. Ruth Padel, Daljit Nagra and Neil Rollinso.
