Lead Judge Angela France with 2019 Frosted Fire Firsts Award Winner Janet Lees selected the award winners and short list from the longlist of poets, all of whom produced an entry worthy of a publisher’s serious consideration.

The longlist was chosen by triage judges, who each read half of the entries, then together agreed a longlist of potential award winners. The triage judges were 2021 Frosted Fire Firsts Award Winners Ben Verinder and Maeve Henry.

All of the entries were anonymous throughout the judging process.
