About the next prize
The Wellcome Trust Book Prize celebrates the best of medicine in literature by awarding £25 000 each year for the finest fiction or non-fiction book centred around medicine. Submissions are now open for the fifth prize and the deadline to enter is the 28 June 2013.
Further exciting developments are being planned for the fifth year of the Prize and will be announced in November 2013.
By establishing the Book Prize, the Wellcome Trust aims to stimulate interest, excitement and debate about medicine and literature, reaching audiences not normally engaged with medical science.
