We highlighted the power of female voices and that books written by women, are for everyone
Make the Women’s Prize for Fiction more relevant to a contemporary audience by exploring its richness, diversity and the power of female storytelling.
Our insight work resulted in a new strategic objective - showing readers that books written by women, are for everyone. The announcement of the Prize’s new charitable status was an opportunity to develop the Prize’s vision, message and narrative and broaden engagement. We established a reactive press office to take the Women’s Prize into new media spaces, and beyond the literary pages. Our core messages communicated the Prize’s status but also focused on highlighting the role and power of women’s voices.
Throughout the 2019 Prize cycle we secured more than 950 dedicated pieces of coverage, reaching entirely different audiences including: The Times, BBC News, Daily Mail, Oprah Magazine, Vogue, The Guardian, Good Housekeeping, Sky News and BBC 6 Music.
