The prize is judged anonymously by a single poet (the judge only learns who the shortlisted poets are following the selection of the winning poems).
This year’s judge is Daljit Nagra. Nagra was the first poet to win the Forward Prize for both his first collection of poetry and its title poem. He recently published his third collection of poetry with Faber, British Museum, and teaches poetry at Brunel University London and is Poet in Residence for BBC Radio 4.
