From the search to find the best women's fiction to the focus on funny children's books, our prizes and awards celebrate the best writing from the UK and beyond.
The prizes and awards we run cover a wide range of genres and themes for both children and adults ranging from a single short story to a whole lifetime's achievement in literature.
BookTrust Prizes and Awards promote books to a wide audience, bringing new books to attention and providing access points for readers to engage with different types of books. Our prizes support writers and illustrators, rewarding them for their endeavours, and celebrate books and writers as an integral part of the UK's arts and culture landscape.
