Yes, Bluesecrets has the prize so do contact her.
Furthermore, for those of you interested in the verse, here's a rough translation:
For these (entries) I heartily thank* the ingenious persons
from which one suitable winner must be chosen.
Through a wondrous** and courageous red knight swinging his sword
a monument more lasting than bronze is created***.
Therefore, friends, applaud today the builder,
who through his name says that he is a warrior from the East****!
*Actually grates is a somewhat archaic way of saying thanks. Normally you'd say gratias, while grates is rather used in formulas around divine services etc, but it suited the metre better (and I like being archaic I suppose)!
**I was a bit liberal in the declension of praesigne (you'd most often expect praesigni here, but it doesn't fit the verse), but hey, this site is medieval and it was all a bit less restrictive then.
***A reference to Horatius, Carmina
****Actually from "the rising", which in reference to the sun means the east.
