Nimbin Performance Poetry World Cup is an opportunity for poets to gather once a year to share their passion for performing poetry.
The competition is more about the spirit of participation than the prize money. The whole weekend is inspirational for the audience and the performers. Hundreds of people have performed since the World Cup began in 2003.
Judging is extremely difficult and the final eight performers are lucky to qualify to perform in the Grand Final at the Town Hall on Sunday evening.
Thanks to all the fabulous performers (38) who came along to Nimbin to share their words and passions. For those who missed the 2011 World Cup, Nimbin Poetry has added 12 videos to the YouTube Channel.
You can find all the 2011 NPPWC Introduction, Elizabeth and Tug return, all 8 Finalists plus the Results videos in a playlist.
