Shortlistings have been coming thick and fast for our founder and director, Alice Curry! We are so proud to announce that, on the heels of winning the Kim Scott Walwyn Prize 2017, she is the only woman on the shortlist of this year’s Young Stationers’ Award!
What is the Young Stationers’ Award?
The prize is awarded to a young person who “has achieved great success in their career; made an outstanding contribution to the sector in which they are working; or achieved success outside their immediate world of work in interesting ways which are relevant to the ethos and trades of the Stationers’ Company.”
Dominic Graham, Chairman of the Young Stationers comments, “The entries to this year’s prize were of an exceptional level and demonstrated to the judges the range and quality of the work being done by young professionals across the livery’s trades.”
Who else made it onto the shortlist?
Anthony Cond (Managing Director, Liverpool University Press), Ian Buckley (Managing Director, Prima Software), and John Macpherson (co-founder and director, Bright Red Publishing).
And the winner is…!
The winner will be announced on the 24th July at the Young Stationers’ Annual Dinner in Stationers’ Hall. The prize is a trophy kindly donated by The Worshipful Company of Pewterers and will be presented by last year’s joint winners, Ella Kahn and Bryony Woods of Diamond Kahn & Woods Literary Agency.
