Kim Scott Walwyn Prize opens for nominations

11th February 2011

The only national prize to celebrate the success of women in publishing has been launched for 2011.

Nominations have been opened for the Kim Scott Walwyn Prize 2011, which offers a GBP 1,000 award to women who have demonstrated achievement in the field of publishing.

The prize, which is managed by reading charity Booktrust and sponsored by the Society of Young Publishers, was founded in honour of Oxford University Press publishing director Kim Scott Walwyn, who died at the age of 45 in the middle of a 'celebrated' career.

Past recipients of the prize include current Macmillan chief executive Annette Thomas, Pearson Education copyright director Lynette Owen and Bloomsbury Publishing managing director Kathy Rooney.

Judging committee chair Kate Jury, a former Oxford University Press marketing director, commented: 'The Kim Scott Walwyn Prize has established itself as a coveted prize for outstanding achievements by women in publishing and our previous winners have all had illustrious and influential careers.'

When the prize was last awarded in 2009, the judging committee praised winner Kathy Rooney for her 'determination, initiative and resolve'.
