Here are the award-winning poems for the Special Esperanto Prize. This prize is awarded for the first time in 2018. There were 48 participants from 20 countries; 22 from France, 4 from Turkey, 3 from the United Kingdom and Venezuela, etc. Most of them were between 18 and 20 years old. Several people sent a poem in French and another in Esperanto. The jury was composed of three poets recognized for a long time: Jesper Jacobsen, Jorge Camacho and Nicola Ruggiero. It is a successful experience to make known and renew. The winner of the first prize will participate with the other winners at the November 22nd awards ceremony.
