Jewish Quarterly/Wingate Prize names 2010 judges

1st March 2010

The judging panel for the Jewish Quarterly/Wingate Prize 2010 has been confirmed.

Chaired by writer and sociologist Anne Karpf, the panel includes author and professor Robert Cassen, broadcaster Naomi Gryn and composer Joseph Finlay.

The prize's shortlist will be named in April, while the winner will be unveiled at an awards ceremony in May.

'This is the only UK prize to recognise writing by Jewish and non-Jewish authors, which stimulates an interest in themes of Jewish concern while appealing to the general reader,' the organisers commented.

Last year's accolade was won by Fred Wander's The Seventh Well, which is an account of how the author survived deportation to Auschwitz in 1942.

Previous winners of the GBP 4,000 prize, which was established in 1977, include Amos Oz, Zadie Smith, Oliver Sacks and WG Sebald.

The prize is supported by the Harold Hyam Wingate Charitable Foundation, which also awards scholarships to academics working in a wide variety of fields across the globe.
