The Times Stephen Spender Prize 2012 for poetry in translation

Entrants are invited to submit a translation of a published poem from any language, modern or classical, into English, together with a commentary of no more than 300 words (see below for guidelines) and the original poem. The submitted translation should be no more than 60 lines long, so entrants may submit an extract if their chosen poem is longer. Self-translation is not accepted.

There's a skill to translation and (so far) I've haven't mastered it.

£5 sterling per entry. Anyone eighteen or under on 1 June 2012 is exempt from this charge

You can enter by email or post.
Entrants must be British residents or British citizens.

There will be three prizes in the Open and 18-and-under categories. The winners of the Open prizes will receive £1000 (first), £750 (second) and £500 (third); the winners of the under-18 prizes will win £250 (first), £150 (second) and £100 (third). There will be one prize (£100) awarded in the 14-and-under category. 

Deadline: Friday 1 June 2012
