Introducing a new £10,000 nature-writing award to Kendal – The Nature Chronicles Prize.
Kendal Mountain Festival are proud to be working alongside the The Nature Chronicles Prize, a brand new nature writing award, a global biennial competition.
Created in memory of Prudence Scott, a lifelong nature diarist who died in 2019, the award aims to find engaging and unique essay length works which share a commitment to truth telling and respond to the time we are in and the world as it is.
Kendal Mountain Festival will be hosting the award-ceremony in November 2022 when one writer will win £10,000! And a further 5 shortlisted writers will receive £1000. Shortlisted entries will be published in an anthology and it is hoped that the result will be a book of surprising works that vary in style but share a commitment to truth and fellow feeling.
