The RATP Grand Prix de Poésie returns in 2024! Open to all, this RATP-initiated competition awaits your poems until April 1, with the prize of a text displayed in the Paris metro during the two summer months.

Want to see your poems writ large on the metro? RATP is once again offering poster space in the metro with its Grand Prix de Poésie de la RATP, until April 1, 2024. From the age of 3, budding poets can let their prose express itself in very short texts, and up to 14 lines. Every year since 2014, nearly 12,000 amateur poets have logged on to the Grand Prix Poésie RATP website to share their pen.

Among them, 100 finalists are published in a collection published with Gallimard and distributed free of charge in stations, in three different categories according to their age: children 's category for under-12s, young people 's category for under-18s and adult category for over-18s. Once again, Internet users will be able to vote for their favorite text in the Grand Prix Voyageurs at the beginning of April. Of the 100 finalists, 10 winners will have the honor of seeing their text displayed in the metro during the two months of summer, to be read by millions of travelers.

For its 10th edition, the prize is presided over by celebrated novelist Amélie Nothomb, accompanied by a jury of arts and culture professionals. The theme is always free, whether it's poetry of the everyday, lyrical, engaged or funny, let your creativity work! So get to your pens!
