6th Annual Saturday 'Visiter' Awards - Submit Your Poe Inspired Work

6th Annual Saturday 'Visiter' Awards - Submit Your Poe Inspired Work

Are you fan of the mysterious, the strange, the gruesome or the eccentric? Are you a writer or artist or film maker or performer? Draw upon your favorite works of Edgar Allan Poe and enter the 6th Annual Saturday “Visiter” awards, opening January 19, Poe’s birthday; deadline to enter is May 30, 2024.

The Saturday “Visiter” Awards are an international contest honoring a new generation of artists and writers inspired by the legacy of Edgar Allan Poe and recognizes the best in multiple categories such as film, art, performance, and writing. For more information, visit Winners of the awards will be announced at the International Edgar Allan Poe Awards & Festival in October 2024.

The Saturday “Visiter” Awards are named after the prize a young Poe won in 1833 from the Saturday Visiter, a weekly periodical published in Baltimore. That prize launched the famed writer’s career. The fee for SVA submission is $25 per entry and nominees will be given a ticket to the Black Cat Ball, a prize medal and a “Saturday Visiter Awards” designation for their work. Judges for the 2024 awards include representatives from preeminent Poe institutions and arts locations, including Baltimore’s own Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum, The Poe Museum in Richmond, Virginia, The Poe Cottage in New York, and others.

Poe Baltimore is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization created to fund, maintain and interpret The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum, and to celebrate the legacy of one of Baltimore’s most famous residents. The organization is dedicated to maintaining the museum as a vibrant experience for the thousands of visitors who come from around the world each year, and as part of a broader mission of city-wide events and educational opportunities celebrating Poe’s legacy in Baltimore and beyond.
