The Maningning Miclat Art Foundation is calling on young poets aged 28 and below to submit their entry to the 2009 Maningning Miclat Trilingual Poetry Competition.

The Poetry Competition consists of 3 divisions - Filipino, English and Chinese. An entry must consist of at least eight (8) but not more than fifteen (15) poems. Authors may join all the divisions but can submit only one (1) entry in every division. All entries should be original in every language and not a translation of another entry.

All entries should be submitted in four (4) copies, double spaced on 81/2 x 11 inches bond paper with one inch margin on all sides and with ARIAL or TIMES NEW ROMAN size 12 font. Entry should be submitted with pen name only. Real name and pen name should be submitted in a separate sealed envelop together with a biodata, copy of birth certificate and a notarized declaration of originality and authenticity of authorship of the entry.

Entries must be addressed to the Maningning Miclat Art Foundation, Inc. (MMAFI), 2nd Floor Mile Long Building, Amorsolo St., Legaspi Village, Makati City (Tel No. 816-7490 to 91) not later than 5:00 P.M. of April 15, 2009. Entries sent by mail should be postmarked/invoiced not later than April 1, 2009.

The Maningning Award, handed out yearly since 2003, honors China-born Maningning Miclat, a poet of 3 languages, a published essayist, a prize-winning visual artist, and teacher/translator/interpreter. Her book of poetry, "Voice from the Underworld" (Anvil Publishing, Inc., 2000) is the first book of poetry in the world in Filipino, English and Chinese languages written solely by one author. Some of her poems were included in a book of top international women poets in Chinese published in China. She passed on in September 2000.

The Maningning Miclat Art Foundation was formed in 2001 to carry on the artist/poet's legacy, encourage creativity, and support and award young outstanding poets and artists. Poetry competition in Filipino, English and Chinese languages is held during odd numbered years while Painting competition is held during even numbered years.

Maningning Miclat was co-author, if posthumously, of the book, Beyond the Great Wall: A Family Journal, which won a 2006 National Book Award for biography. The Manila Critics Circle citation reads: "From 1971 to 1986, the Miclat family lived in the People's Republic of China and this gathering of essays from Mario, Alma, Banaue and the late Maningning Miclat flow together in a majestic yet personal recollection of a time and place between times and places. Beyond the Great Wall signifies the act of celebration through memory, and moving on through returning."

Grand winners in the 3 divisions of the Poetry Competition will each receive P28,000.00 together with a Julie Lluch trophy and the special collector's edition of the books "Voice from the Underworld," "Beauty for Ashes: Remembering Maningning," and "Beyond the Great Wall." Past winners of the Maningning Poetry Awards are Naya Valdellon and Joselito delos Reyes in 2003, Allan Pastrana, Joseph Saguid and Ye Cai-sheng in 2005, Raymond John de Borja, Erica Clariz delos Reyes and Chen Si-yuan in 2007.
