The original literature prize was endowed with 15,000 euros. In addition, from 2002 to 2006 a prize for young talent endowed with 5000 euros was awarded, which was determined by the main prize winner. Since its sponsor withdrew from the funding, the 2008 Young Talent Award had to be suspended; since 2010 it has been awarded again. The main prize was financed by the Stadtsparkasse Cuxhaven; VGH Versicherungen donated the young talent award . The Joachim Ringelnatz Prize was intended to award poets “who have made a significant, artistically independent contribution to contemporary German-language literature” (according to the award guidelines). Until 1991 the award was advertised as a public competition.

Following a redesign, the prize, now endowed with 10,000 euros (as of 2020), was awarded for the first time in the “Art” category in 2018 and is now to be awarded every two years alternately in four categories.
