From the MPL 2021:

Thank you to the Victorian literary sector, publishers and the many sector journals, websites and organisations for supporting the Melbourne Prize for Literature 2021 & Awards. During this difficult time, we have had an entry result well beyond our expectations.

Thank you to our 2021 partners and patrons for their community investment, which has made it possible to offer this year’s program and to our three judges for their time and dedication to the next step of judging.

Keep an eye on for the finalist announcements on September 15, when public voting will also open for the Civic Choice Award 2021. The winners in all categories will be announced on November 10 on our website.
With thanks,
Melbourne Prize Trust”
