Jury Panel

Contest panel was headed by the founder and the team of jurors from three different nations. Jury panel was comprised of professors, professionals and exceptionally skilled personals. Over years, our panel witnessed the presence of juries from India, United States, Canada, Ireland, Australia, United Kingdom, France, Japan, Italy, Ghana, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Bhutan.

It is a matter of pride that the jury panels of the past admired our organizational ethics and professional approaches towards the process, found it as a great challenging experience that is coupled with satisfaction and befitting international goodwill.


Selection of winners are purely based on the merit of the scores arrived by various juries based on their individual and independent evaluation. The conduct is organized in such a way that merit is the only qualifier and all other things are kept blind. Initially, only the top scored writer was awarded, but later to extend the benefits of the extensive work put behind these contests, top ten system is introduced.

Announcement of the results

The evaluation process will be taking place from the month of December to January and usually the results will be announced around the mid of February.


A cash award of 5000 INR is given to the Winner of the Contest along with the prestigious Rabindranath Tagore Award Memento. Top 4 winners are rewarded with 'Poeisis Award for Excellence in Poetry'. Remaining 5 positions holders are awarded with 'Distinguished Poet Award'.

Over the past, this platform has inspired a vast majority of poets and writers by providing a meritorious and reliable platform to perform, compete and reap rewards for their talents.
