THE PUSHKIN HOUSE
BOOK PRIZE

The Pushkin House Book Prize rewards the very best non-fiction writing on Russia. Worth £5,000 to the winner, the Prize was created to encourage public understanding and intelligent debate about the Russian-speaking world. The prize is for a book published in English, but translations from other languages, including of course Russian, are encouraged and actively sought.

The Pushkin Prize is generously supported by Douglas Smith (author and winner of the inaugural award in 2013), Stephanie Ellis-Smith, the Polonsky Foundation and in 2019 we welcomed the London Russian Book Club as an additional sponsor.
