The Orwell Prizes 2022
The Orwell Prizes 2022 will open for entries in November 2021, with plans for an ambitious live event series in 2022, and a revised system of finalists and winners to replace the current longlist to winner structure. More information (including eligibility, book and journalism deadlines, and how to enter) will be released when our panels are announced in November.
Each year, our independent panels award 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 four prizes: The Orwell Prize for Political Writing, The Orwell Prize for Political Fiction, The Orwell Prize for Journalism, and The Orwell Prize for Exposing Britain's Social Evils.
