Bassey Ikpi hosts #NaijaPoetrySlam | Poetry Contest

Bassey Ikpi will be coming to Nigeria in August, and will be hosting 5 events. 3 in Lagos, 1 in Abuja, and 1 in Calabar. Here are the guidelines for the contest.

1. The theme of the contest is "home".

2. Submit an original poem that is at least half in English.

3. Video submissions should be no more than 2 minutes long

4.You can enter the competition from anywhere in Africa but you will cover your costs should you be chosen. That means if you want to participate, you have to get to Lagos on your own.

5.The video must be recorded specifically for the competition. One camera; one poet. No live performance videos. No special effects.

6. Before you begin your video, state your name and where you're from. Please include that info as well as an email address in the information box of YOUR video.

7. Upload your video as a video response to THIS video. That means that if you don't have a Youtube channel or account, you need to get one. If you have a gmail account, then you have a Youtube account. Please don't ask me how to set up a gmail or Youtube account.

8. Share with your friends and get them to 'like' your video for a chance to be picked as the audience favourite

9. Make sure you follow Bassey Ikpi on Twitter and like her Facebook fanpage for updates to the contest. And leave a comment down below after you upload your video response just to make sure she got it. She will comment on the video after she's viewed to let you know it's been viewed.

10. Contest ends at 11:59PM (EST, US) 27, May 2012. Any video received any time after the contest ends will not be considered for the contest.

Good luck! Twitter: @basseyworldlive @gbagyichild Official Hashtag: #NaijaPoetrySlam

The cash price will be announced later but for the entries Bassey picks, they will have a one on one mentoring/workshop session with her when she comes to Nigeria, before the competition.
