Waves 2017 - BITS Piani Goa
Presenting @InVerse, a National Poetry Slam Competition in association with @Waves 2017, with Regionals in Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore and Goa. The Finals will take place in BITS Goa, during Waves, in front of a panel of eminent judges.
The Pune regional will be in association with Pune Poetry Slam and Airplane Poetry Movement, organized at Gyaan Adab Centre. Cash prizes being up for grabs make this an event that fans of the spoken word cannot afford to miss!
1. Contestants will have to submit up to 3 poems (in text format) that they will be performing in their respective cities, during online registrations. 20 poets will be selected to perform in every city, for the Regionals.
2. The poem must be of the poet's own construction, and must be in the English language
3. Poems can be on any subject and in any style - you can go crazy! (In fact, it would be advisable to do so :P)
4. Each poet gets three minutes (plus a ten-second grace period) to read one poem. If the poet goes over time, points will be deducted from the total score.
5. The poet may not use props, costumes, or musical instruments.
6. The judges will give each poem a score and the number of contestants chosen to go through to the Finals will depend on the total number of contestants in the city, to ensure fairness.
