The Orwell Prizes 2020
The Orwell Prizes aim to encourage good writing and thinking about politics. Winning entries should strive to meet Orwell’s own ambition ‘to make political writing into an art’. They are free to enter and independent of editorial agenda.
The Orwell Prizes are running to schedule. Entry to the 2020 Orwell Prizes is now closed. The shortlisting announcement is scheduled for Thursday 21st May, and the winners will be revealed at a special event on 25th June 2020. The timer on the right counts us down to the next landmark in the Prize cycle, while below you can find out more about our longlists.
