It is with great pleasure that we announce the award winners for the World Poetry Canada International Peace Festival 2013.
Each entry was nominated by one or more people, and went through a background check. The awards are based on humanitarian and peace efforts to make the world a better place.
Many of the award winners are youth. They show a wonderful commitment for peace and the respect of others. Each award winner has sacrificed to promote peace and understanding and in some instances have shown great courage in the face of adversity.
For the first time ever, we had 10 film, doc entries. With help from our community parter Cinevolution, we were able to include the film award winners this year. The two films will be shown during the peace festival.

Greetings from our winners 2012!
Thank you for this very distinct award… I love you WORLD POETRY FAMILY!
WORLD POETRY…THANK YOU!
O my heart is filled with elation
To sing, too, with the world class poets
Who have tabled their poetry pen
To stab war in the heart
Here, I avail my pen
To join all- Dr Penpen
Dorion, Ariadne, Terri…whose pens
Have layed eggs of peace as poetry hens
I be a poet
Not by my might
But of thee, the cradle of all souls
Who calls my poetry pen to anchor the peace pole
But I still be an apprentice
Learning to brew the ol of poetry
Under the mastership of Shakespear’s remnants…
So I trample over ego and bow to the pride of humility
Let this course, therefore
Lead me to the path of poetry captains
Who would sail my thoughts and emotions
So I scribe to ears and eyes pleasant poetries
World Poetry & Canada International
‘Miida ny3 shi’…
O I say, thank you!
