Hay Festival brings readers and writers together to share stories and ideas in sustainable events around the world. The festivals inspire, examine and entertain, inviting participants to imagine the world as it is and as it might be.

Since 2016, the YA Book Prize has been awarded at the festival, with the shortlisted authors taking part in panels and a winner's ceremony.

You can see the YA Book Prize-shortlisted authors in action at Hay Festival in previous years on our videos page.
