The 2020 Industry Award // $3000 // Judged by Daniel Slager, Carmen Giménez Smith, and Peter LaBerge
Welcome to the 2020 Frontier Industry Prize! For this one, we want to award one poem the $3000 prize—selected by a panel of judges representing different unique pillars of our industry.
Carmen Giménez Smith is the Co-Director of the fabulous community organization, Cantomundo; Daniel Slager is the publisher of the incredible dream press, Milkweed Editions; and Peter LaBerge is the wonderfully talented founder and editor of The Adroit Journal, where many of your favorite new poets find their first footing. The panel of these three judges will collaborate to select a single winning poem from a group of finalists for the $3000 prize and publication on Frontier. Our Frontier team will select the ten finalists—we're excited to get to put some amazing poets in front of these amazing professionals.
We're excited as well to reward our 2nd and 3rd place poems, selected by the judges, with $200 / $100 respectively and with publication on Frontier Poetry. The winner and finalists will be announced Fall 2019.
