The Saudi Ministry of Culture launched on Thursday the 'Voice of the Poem' competition, which is available on a dedicated online platform and aims to improve poetic recitation skills for people of all ages.
The competition is part of the 'Year of Arab Poetry 2023' initiative and aims to reflect the cultural importance of Arab poetry in Arab culture over the decades.
The competition begins with a selection of poems from the eloquent Arab heritage for each age group. Participants can submit their recitations virtually via a platform, and a qualified and experienced jury will judge the submissions, taking into account artistic expression, vocal performance, emotional communication, innovation, and originality.
The winners will be announced, and their entries will be published via the platform.
