The Wainwright Prize, first awarded in 2014, is a literary prize that seeks to reward the best British outdoors, nature and travel writing. The prize is named in honour of Alfred Wainwright (1907-1991), the British author, illustrator and hillwalker who is most well-known for his seven-volume Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells, published between 1955-1966. In 2020, The Wainwright Prize was extended to include a second category to cover writing about conservation. In 2022, it was renamed the James Cropper Wainwright Prize after signing a sponsorship deal with James Cropper, a paper manufacturer based in the English Lake District.
