The Grand Prize Winner receives $524, Silver Prize Winner $131, and Bronze Prize Winner $65.50.

In addition, three poets have been selected to receive Honorable Mentions for their outstanding work, and twenty poets have been selected as Runners Up, whose work ChicagoPoetry.com is proud to showcase in a print edition of Poetry Cram 13 that will be given away free at this year's Chicago Public Library Poetry Fest as well as here, in this, the very first online edition of Poetry Cram.

Judge. This year's CAPP judge was Charlie Rossiter, host of the audio website PoetryPoetry.com, who is an NEA Fellowship recipient and three-time Pushcart Prize nominee. He is the author of four books of poetry and numerous chapbooks, including The Night We Danced With the Raelettes and All Over America: Road Poems (FootHills Publications, 2009), which is based on 60,000+ miles or road trip experiences throughout U.S. and Canada. He is also the co-author of the book Back Beat, of which Lawrence Ferlinghetti said: "Back Beat beats everything for being beater than the Beats." Rossiter's poetry has also been featured on National Public Radio, the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival in New Jersey as well as at the Chicago Blues Festival. He has led poetry workshops all over the country. PoetryAward.org is proud to have Mr. Rossiter serve as the judge for the inaugural Contemporary American Poetry Prize.

Sponsor. PoetryAward.org and the Contemporary American Poetry Prize is sponsored by CJ Laity, twelve year veteran publisher of ChicagoPoetry.com, curator of the Poetry Cram Magazine contest and twenty year host of poetry events and festivals for such distinguished venues as the Chicago Public Library, the Poetry Foundation's Printers Ball and the Chicago Tribune Printers Row Book Fair.
