A poetry competition is an event in which poets can submit their original poems for consideration, and a panel of judges evaluates the submissions to determine winners. Poetry competitions can be organized by various institutions such as schools, universities, literary societies, or private organizations. The purpose of a poetry competition is to promote creative writing, provide a platform for poets to showcase their work, and encourage the appreciation of poetry. Poetry competitions can also serve as a means of discovering new and emerging poets and providing exposure to their work.

A poetry competition is often organized to promote creativity, encourage artistic expression, and provide a platform for poets to showcase their work. It can also help to build a community of writers and poetry enthusiasts, as well as offer opportunities for recognition and awards for talented poets. Poetry competitions can also serve as a way to support the literary arts and inspire people to engage with poetry as both writers and readers.

Poetry Competiton in Urdu

A poetry competition in Urdu, also known as a "mushaira" or "shayari competition," is a platform for poets to showcase their work in the Urdu language. Urdu poetry competitions are an important part of the South Asian literary tradition, particularly in Pakistan and India. These competitions are often held in cultural festivals or literary events, and they feature poets reciting their poems in front of an audience. The judges evaluate the performances based on the quality of the poetry, the depth of the meaning, and the delivery of the performance. The winners of these competitions are often recognized and awarded prizes for their talent and creativity.
