Poems were featured on a 25-foot HD video projection wall. Contest judges were also revealed at the ceremony. This year, judges included esteemed authors, educators, editors, publishers and literary award winners residing in more than 12 different states. The Austin Poetry Society Annual Awards Ceremony took place at The North Door on May 17, 2014. Thanks to everyone who participated in this worthwhile event!
