The YA Book Prize 2020

YA Book Prize Logo

 

The YA Book Prize is back! Publishers can enter the 2020 prize now.

We know you love YA fiction so our aim is to showcase the best YA from the UK and Ireland, awarding the YA Book Prize annually to a novel our expert judges, including young people, think is something special.

Worth £2,000 to the winning author, the prize is presented at Hay Festival. Previous winners include Louise O'Neill's Only Ever Yours (2015), Sarah Crossan's One (2016), Patrice Lawrence's Orangeboy (2017) and Will Hill's After the Fire (2018). Last year’s prize went to Sara Barnard for her novel about the impact of a teacher-student relationship, Goodbye, Perfect (published by Macmillan Children's Books).

Watch this space to see who will be crowned in 2020!
