The competition is being judged by Scottish poet Andrew McCallum: you can read his blog enchevêtrements here

Andrew McCallum was born in Wellhead Farm Cottage, just outside Cleghorn, brought up in Carnwath, far frae his hame did wander on reaching his majority, and – after an absence of 25 years – bides back in Biggar, where he can see from his bedroom window, in a cleuch of the Hartree Hills, the farm cottage under the roof-tree of which his mother was born; a circumstance from which, being fond of circles and the completion thereof, he derives great satisfaction. He scribbles poetry, which has been reluctantly and against his better judgement published in twa-three magazines and a wheen o anthologies in Britain and America. He was a long time Secretary of Biggar Museum Trust’s Brownsbank Committee, which sponsors the Brownsbank Writing Fellowship, and convenor of Biggar Writers’ Group.
