The Wainwright Prize seeks to reward the best writing on the general outdoors, nature and UK-based travel writing and is sponsored by Wainwright Golden Beer.
The prize will be awarded to the work which best reflects Wainwright’s core values of Great British writing & culture and a celebration of the outdoors. £5,000 will be presented to the winning author. The 2015 winner was Meadowland by John Lewis-Stempel.
