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 Ted Hughes Award 2016 is now closed for recommendations. The judges are award-winning poets Jo Bell, Bernard O’Donoghue and Mercury Prize-nominated singer-songwriter Kathryn Williams.
For more information about the award, including eligibility guidelines and how to make a recommendation, see our FAQs.
