The judging panel is delighted to award the PoetTrio art commission to Martin Heslop.
Heslop fought off exceedingly tough competition from 75 other proposals to win the £3000 commission.
The artwork will be unveiled on the 3rd May at the 2018 Newcastle Poetry Festival at the Sage Theatre.
Thanks to all entrants for their proposals which were of extremely high quality. We regret that we are unable to provide feedback about unsuccessful proposals.
