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 winner of the 2015 Ted Hughes Award is David Morley for The Invisible Gift: Selected Poems published by Carcanet. Read the Press Release on our website.

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.
