The Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry seeks to recognise excellence in poetry, highlighting outstanding contributions made by poets to our cultural life. The £5,000 prize is donated by Carol Ann Duffy, funded from the annual honorarium the Poet Laureate traditionally receives from HM The Queen.
The three judges are award-winning poet Jackie Kay, Forward prize nominated Andrew McMillan and novelist Ali Smith – winner of this year’s Bailey’s Women’s prize for fiction.
