The Dorset Award

The Dorset Award was established in 2007 to recognise the achievement of the writer from Dorset placed highest in the competition. It can be awarded across any of the four competition categories.

In 2018, the Award was presented to Simon Middleton from Bridport for his poetry entry 'Space was a Material'. 

The Award is generously sponsored by The Book Shop, Bridport's independent book store and we thank them for their ongoing support.

"Being Highly Commended at Bridport has been hugely encouraging for me. It's a thrill to be rubbing shoulders in the 2017 anthology with so many writers I admire and respect."
