The Orange Prize is dead, long live the Women’s Prize for Fiction

As we reported in May, Orange has pulled out of sponsoring the prize that bore its name and it will next year be known as the Women’s Prize for Fiction. No title sponsor has yet been found but several private donors have come forward, including Cherie Blair, Martha Lane Fox and Joanna Trollope. Here is how the BBC reported it. And this is what Martha Lane Fox said in The Telegraph.

The judging panel next year will be chaired by Miranda Richardson, along with Razia Iqbal, Rachel Johnson, JoJo Moyes and Natasha Walter.
