Wainwright Prize
The Wainwright Prize is a literary prize awarded annually for the best work of general outdoors, nature and UK-based travel writing. In 2020 it was split into The Wainwright Prize for UK nature writing and The Wainwright Prize for writing on global conservation, with separate longlists and judging panels. It is restricted to books published in the UK. It celebrates the legacy of British guidebook writer Alfred Wainwright. The prize was established by Frances Lincoln Publishers and The Wainwright Society, in association with The National Trust.

In 2020 the prize was no longer sponsored, but was supported by an anonymous benefactor and was "in association with the National Trust". In 2021 the Kendal papermakers James Cr ...
