ENDING: Nanjing Poetry Contest
October 15, 2017
The Nanjing Poetry Contest is for poetry about the Nanjing Massacre. Per the host site, about the event:
During December of 1937 and subsequent months in Nanjing (Nanking), over 300,000 civilian and disarmed combatants were murdered by the Japanese troops. The Japanese soldiers also gang-raped over 20,000 females, including the seniors and minors, and robbed/destroyed countless valuable economic and cultural properties. We are now especially angry that so far the Japanese Government has still denied the facts of such terrible war crime committed by their Imperial Army.
Prize is $1000 in each language category as well as a trip to Washington DC for an awards ceremony and online publication.
