The Donald Windham-Sandy M. Campbell Literature Prizes are global English-language awards that call attention to literary achievement and provide writers with the opportunity to focus on their work independent of financial concerns. Prizewinners in three categories – nonfiction, fiction, and drama – receive an unrestricted grant of $150,000 to support their work. Up to nine prizes are awarded each year.
