“The Richard Jefferies Society and White Horse Book Shop Literary Prize”* is awarded to the author of the publication considered by the judging panel to be the most outstanding nature writing published in a given calendar year.

An annual prize of £1,000 will be awarded for any length or format of writing on themes or topics broadly consistent with the work of Richard Jefferies. It must be published (not re-published) within the calendar year. First English translations of works are eligible. E-books are excluded from the award. 

Nominations may be made by anyone including publishers. 

Decisions about the Prize will be made by the Society's Executive Council and will be final.  The right not to make an award in a given year is reserved. 

The closing date for nominations is 31 December. Please send your nominations by using the email button and include as much covering information as possible.
