A New Prize for Climate Fiction

The Climate Fiction Prize celebrates the most inspiring novels tackling the climate crisis.

Through great stories, it will support societies to fully grasp the climate change threat and to embrace its solutions. It’s not enough for audiences to know about climate change; they need to see an uncertain future and understand that change is urgent but possible. 

Launched at Hay Festival in June 2024 the £10,000 prize will first be awarded to a single novel in May 2025.

“The climate crisis asks us to imagine other forms of human existence—a task to which fiction is the best suited of all cultural forms.”

Amitav Ghosh

Submissions are now open, and publishers are invited to submit titles for the Prize, until Monday 1 July 2024. Further details and full terms and conditions can be found here.
