(At the time of publication, the fund for this prize had reached a total of R781.50, from more than sixty donations, mainly in the R2 to R10 range. The fund's patrons were N P van Wyk Louw and Uys Krige, while the seven trustees were representatives of the poet's publishers - Human & Rousseau, John Malherbe and Simondium - and the writers Jack Cope, Adele Naude, Hennie Aucamp and Jan Rabie.)
