Thank You To All Entrants: The originality and standard of the Poetry submitted for 'The Poetry Box Halloween Silver Cup Award 2012' - was both refreshingly original and very high, making judging the Final 5 Prize-Winning Poems enormously challenging.   The Theme: 'Halloween' would appear to conjure such an exciting variety of contradictory literary responses by terrifically talented and delightfully original contemporary poets - both from within the UK - and from around the World - that we now look forward to approaching a number of the Finalists and Short-Listed Poets regarding publishing their Entries in forthcoming Editions of 'The Poetry Box Dark & Horror Poetry Magazine Monthly' during the coming months. 
We also look forward to announcing the launch of: 'The Poetry Box Halloween Silver Cup Award 2013' - and hope that this year's entrants will submit further examples of their 'Halloween' themed poetry for consideration for what is a truly exciting and utterly unique Dark, Horror and Satire Poetry Award.
 
Thank You To All Entrants For Their Participation.
