Community Voting – December 1, 2009 to January 15, 2010
Jury Voting – January 18, 2010 to February 1, 2010

The contest starts on December 1, 2009. Authors must register their poetry books for the competition by January 15, 2010, 12 pm (EDT) / 9 am (PDT). At least one poem must have anything to do with winter. The poetry books must not be shorter than 20 BookRix pages. Until January 15, 2010 readers can vote for their favorite poetry books. Readers’ votes determine a selection of the best 10 books, “TOP 10”. Afterwards this selection of the best rated 10 poetry books will be given to an independent jury consisting of Georgia Writers Association, a Professor Emeritus and a professional writer who works for BookRix as a freelancer. The Jury will choose the best three poetry books out of the final 10 books. All winners will be announced on or before February 1, 2010.
