There are five new categories: “Who Is The Most Important Person In My Life?” 'What Treasure Would I Like To Discover?” 'What Don’t I Know About You That I Should?” 'What Would I Do If I Ruled The World?” 'Should We Be Thinking About Today Or Tomorrow?” Poets may submit a maximum of three poems, no more than one in each of three of the five contest categories.

Poems may be in rhyme, free verse, Haiku or other accepted poetry forms and of any length, up to a maximum of 60 lines.
