2012 Orange Prize judging panel unveiled

14th October 2011

The judges of the 2012 Orange Prize for Fiction have been unveiled, with Joanna Trollope once again set to chair the panel.

She will be joined by the novelist and broadcaster Lisa Appignanesi and the journalist Victoria Derbyshire, as well as writer Natalie Haynes and broadcaster Natasha Kaplinsky.

In addition, former judge Martha Lane Fox will be joining the 2012 Women's Committee, the members of which act as guardians of the prize.

Trollope said it is a 'wonderful quartet of judges' who, because of their varied professions, will all have a different perspective on the power of language and ideas.

'They are all extremely busy, so I am especially grateful to them all for agreeing to participate in judging this significant prize. They will bring energy and experience to our discussions,' she added.

Next year's Orange Prize for Fiction winner will receive GBP 30,000 and must have published their work between April 1st 2011 and 31st March 2012.

The longlist will be unveiled in late March or early April, with the winner announced in late May or early June 2012.
