Collection: The Jhalak Prize Shortlist 2024

First awarded in March 2017, the Jhalak Prize and its new sister award Jhalak Children’s & YA Prize founded in 2020, seek to celebrate books by British/British resident BAME writers. 

The prizes are unique in that they accept entries published in the UK by writers of colour. These include (and not limited to) fiction, non-fiction, short stories, graphic novels, poetry and all other genres.

The winner of the 2023 prize was None of the Above by Travis Alabanza.

Winner announced on the 30 May.
