The Orwell Prize

The Orwell Prize is Britain’s most prestigious prize for political writing. Every year, the Prize rewards the work – the book, the journalism and (since 2009) the blog – which comes closest to George Orwell’s ambition ‘to make political writing into an art’. But it does much more than that, taking events around the country to enthuse the public about good political writing and thinking.
