The £2,000 YA Book Prize is awarded to a YA title written by an author living in the UK or Ireland. The panel of judges is Caroline Carpenter (chair), Rachel Fox, Elle McNicoll, Joel Rochester, and Sarah Webb. “The shortlist is selected by a team at The Bookseller and the winner is selected by a panel of expert and teenage judges, who are asked to pick the book they believe is the best-written and that they would be most likely to share with young adults.”
The prize is organized by book trade magazine The Bookseller and run in partnership with Edinburgh International Book Festival. The winner will be presented at the festival, August 13-19, 2022. For more information, and the complete shortlist, see the official prize website.
