YA Book Prize



Address:


London, England UK

The YA Book Prize launched in 2014 to celebrate great books for teenagers and young adults and aims to get more teens reading and buying books. It is the first prize in the UK and Ireland to specifically focus on fiction for young adults.

The prize is organised by book trade magazine The Bookseller and is run in partnership with Edinburgh International Book Festival. The shortlist is selected by a team at The Bookseller and the winner is selected by a panel of expert and teenage judges, who are asked to pick the book they believe is the best-written and that they would be most likely to share with young adults.

The author must have been living in the UK or Ireland for at least six months prior to publication. Submissions are only accepted from publishing houses.
