Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Finals Night 2018 at ANNEX Theatre
The top 12 poets from prelims advance to this bout. Who will claim the title of 2018 Canadian Individual Poetry Slam (CIPS) Champion? This closing match includes a feature presentation by last year's champion Ifrah Hussein.
Poets in the Finals will be performing three-minute poems. The first round will consist of twelve poets. The top seven highest-scoring poets will move on to the second round. Then, the top four highest-scoring poets from the second round move on to the third (and final) round. The highest-scoring poet in the third round becomes the 2017 Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Champion. Its a blank slate each round, not cumulative score. The order in each round is determined by random draw.
