Reasoned, constructive and compelling entries that explore personal and societal values.

Here are the shortlisted entries that, in the view of The John Byrne Award team, best fit our judging criteria.

We no longer award £250 monthly prizes. Instead we award quarterly prizes of £500 in April, July, and October and 1 annual prize of £7,500. Entries submitted to the quarterly awards throughout the year will be automatically entered into the annual award. You can find out more here. 

The final shortlist for the competition year 2019/2020 will be announced soon.
