How to send in your films


  • Upload your video to YouTube and then email us a link to view it. Please make sure you pay attention to the privacy settings, and only make it publicly visible if you want to.


  • Or email your film direct to us. We will upload it onto the Poetry Society YouTube channel (subject to receiving an entry form)
  • If you are struggling to send your film via email as the file is too large you may need to use a service like WeTransfer, or Dropbox.

Remember that you will need to complete an entry form before we upload your video (with a signature from your parent or guardian if you are under 16) .

Remember to label the file with your name and title of poem/rap, so we can match up your entry form.


If you are having any issues then please contact us.
