YA Book Prize


YA logo 2017The YA Book Prize was established in 2014 by The Bookseller, the the main trade publication of the British book trade, in response to concern from publishers about an absence of prizes recognising this area of literature. The prize is sponsored by story-sharing start-up Movellas.

The judges are tasked identifying titles that particularly inspire or engage the core audience of teenage and young adult readers.

The 2017 winner, announced at an awards ceremony at Hay Festival on 1st June, was Patrice Lawrence for Orangeboy.

The 2018 shortlist was announced on 1st March and it was announced that this year The Bookseller will also be giving the YA Book Prize second ever YA Book Prize Special Achievement Award to Stripes Publishing and the authors of its anthology A Change is Gonna Come. To explain their choice The Bookseller said of the book; 'We believe it was one of the most important YA books published last year and we wanted to recognise the great work that Stripes and its authors have done to improve inclusivity in UK YA'.
