Applause: Latest funding and awards announced

Good Design Awards honour innovators, recipient of 2020 John Mulvaney Fellowship announced, playwright Ang Collins awarded Incubator Fellowship, and more.

This year’s Booker Prize shortlist has been announced with a list that favours women and writers from diverse backgrounds.

One of this year’s judges, Sameet Rahim, said the panel judged books on a number of criteria but he was also looking for technical aspects of writing: ‘We were looking for books that really told a story and grabbed us, we were looking for originality as well. And personally I was also looking for technical mastery and at the level of the sentence it needed to be really, really superb.’
