Thanks to everyone who took part this year's Digital Slam! We had lots of great entries come in, and the judges had a tricky time whittling them down to a final ten. But whittle down they did.

And so, we are delighted to present this year's shortlist . . .

The poems/performances are listed in alphabetical order. Scroll down, click 'play', and feast your eyes/ears.

And don't forget, once you've done that, click on our voting widget to register your support for your favourite poet/spoken word artist.

The voting is open from now till 5pm (BST) Sunday 11 August.
