The Orwell Prizes 2023
Each year, The Orwell Foundation awards prizes to the writing and reporting which best meets the spirit of George Orwell's own ambition 'to make political writing into an art'.
There are currently five prizes: two for books (The Orwell Prize for Political Writing and The Orwell Prize for Political Fiction) and three for journalism (The Orwell Prize for Journalism, The Orwell Prize for Exposing Britain's Social Evils and The Orwell Prize for Reporting Homelessness).
Finalists for all The Orwell Prizes are invited to The Orwell Festival - a series of public events to discuss the most important and exciting political thinking and writing today. The next Orwell Festival will take place in June 2023.
