Dunedin writer David Eggleton has won the poetry category of the 2016 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards.
Mr Eggleton's winning collection The Conch Trumpet, published by Otago University Press, was praised by the competition's judges for its energy.
Category convener of judges Elizabeth Caffin said Mr Eggleton's work evoked images of New Zealand.
"He has an acute sense of the physical landscape as alive and present, but also of its history, in word and action,'' Ms Caffin said.
Mr Eggleton was awarded a $10,000 prize at a ceremony in Auckland last night.
