Due to poor voting turn-out on the last one, the BELOW is no longer applicable:

Contests of over 60 poets, will be judged by the participants, after I choose the 10 finalists. This is only fair regarding a Tournament that is supposed to be for the people and I respect you guys enough to vote well but only really viable if there is a critical mass.

Prefer not to read:

Morbid poetry or about self-hatred
Copyright and your name anywhere in the poem
Video or music attached to the writing
Bad rhyming poetry
Repeat entries (stuff I've read before, yes I do remember)

What I do really like reading:

erotic poetry
poems about poetry or writing
authentic spiritual topics
surreal narratives that are difficult to pin down
superior use of vocabulary
very sharp and clean simple verse
