Adverts related to a new poetry contest have managed to attract a large number of poets aspiring to achieve fame across Saudi Arabia.

The poets, however, have recently discovered t hat the contest was fake, its organizers a group of mere swindlers.

This is an unprecedented accident in Saudi Arabia, showing the readiness of some people to exploit Saudis' love for poetry to swindle people, perhaps out of large amounts of money.

The organizers of the fake poetry contest said they would organize it in 13 Saudi cities under sponsorship from several Saudi emirs and officials.

They said they had authorization from the Saudi Ministry of Culture to organize the event.

They asked poets who want to participate in the contest to send text message to the organizers. The message would cost an applicant 5 Saudi riyals.
