 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 shortlist for the 2014 Ted Hughes Award has been announced by judges Grayson Perry, Kei Miller and Julia Copus. The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony on 2 April 2015 that also celebrates the winners of the National Poetry Competition.
