The Quagga Prize

The Quagga Prize for Literary Fiction was established in 2014 as a much-needed door to fiction of significant merit. It honours the spirit of independent publishers, especially those who, for various reasons, may feel locked-out from major awards.

The Promoter and Principal Judge is David James, a reputable academic and author of six novels and a collection of short stories.

The 2014 entry proved highly successful and the Quagga Gold Medal was presented to Enver Carim for The Price of an Education at an Award Ceremony in London on November 4, 2014.


 The award ceremony for 2015; gold medal won by Peter Cowlam for his book Who's Afraid of the Booker Prize?
