Woman's Prize for Fiction (formerly Orange Prize) to be privately funded in 2013

Oct 09 2012

The Woman's Prize for Fiction, formerly sponsored by mobile phone company Orange, will be privately funded in 2013 with donors including Christopher Foyle, Joanna Trollope, e-book site Bilbary, Cherie Blair and Martha Lane Fox. Kate Mosse, chair of the Women┬╣s Prize for Fiction board, said, "We were overwhelmed with interest from potential headline sponsors. However, it became clear sponsorship budgets for next year were already committed, so we took the decision to privately fund the Prize for 2013 while we finalised our arrangements for 2014 and beyond. We are delighted that such a wide range of people are supporting this exceptional year and thank them for their support."
