Awards season isn’t only limited to the entertainment industry; all trades and professions deserve celebration. Authors, publishers, ghostwriters, and editors have their time to shine with specific book awards.


Not many people know this, but the publishing industry also gets rewarded for its hard work. There are several awards for writers and other people in literature that plenty of avid readers don’t even know about.

While it is great to be celebrated by peers, fan recognition plays a significant role in a book’s exposure. Consequently, we’ve decided to get everyone clued up and ready to cheer on by listing ten book awards to look out for in 2021.

Women’s Prize for Fiction

The Women’s Prize for Fiction was created in 1991 when the Booker Prize shortlist didn’t include any women. This international prize accepts entries for full-length fiction, and winners get a limited edition bronze figurine and £30,000.

Orwell Book Prize


The Orwell Book Prize focuses on political writing to honor George Orwell’s passion for political writing. George Orwell stated his ambition to make political writing into an art, and this award celebrates those who come close to it.
