Hunt Ducker poetry competition

To celebrate National Poetry Day 2019, and with our special friends, Forest & Bird, takahē introduces the Hunt Ducker Poetry Competition!

Hunt Ducker? Yeah, Hunt Ducker, because we want your words about New Zealand’s awesome native birds. Celebrate the natural beauty (or the natural comedy) of anything from a pīwakawaka to a kākāpō, an albatross to a fairy tern.

First prize is a year’s membership to Forest & Bird and a year’s subscription to takahē magazine, with your poem shared on social media and considered for publication by both organisations.

Two runners-up will receive takahē subscriptions, their poem shared on social media, and consideration for publication in takahē.

We especially want to hear from new and emerging poets, so don’t be whakamā. Give us a tweet, a chirrup, or a flap about your favourite fowl! Entry is free, and open from 13 July until midnight 22 August 2019.

For full entry details, see our Competitions page. Good luck!
