Ηow to submit

The deadline for submissions is invariably 31st January of the year following the year of the prize. Books published in 2019, for instance, should be submitted by January 31, 2020. All submissions must be written in English or translated into English. (For translations, the year of publication of the translated book counts, not the year of original publication in any other language.)

Authors, publishers, editors can submit books, whether written, published or edited by them.

Submissions require two copies of the book and a cover letter.

The postal address for submissions is –

The London Hellenic Prize

The Hellenic Centre

16-18 Paddington Street

London W1U 5AS

You can also send an enquiry enquiries@londonhellenicprize.org giving the basic details of your submission (author/title/publisher/date) in order to confirm its eligibility.

Please note that the LHP Adjudicating Committee convenes in February each year and proceeds to formulate a Long List and, eventually, a Shortlist of candidates. The Shortlist is announced through this website in May each year and the winner is chosen in June.

The winner will be announced on this website and soon after advertised in the Times Literary Supplement.
