All about our people
The Costa Book Awards honour some of the most outstanding books of the year written by authors based in the UK and Ireland. There are five categories - First Novel, Novel, Biography, Poetry and Children’s Book - with one of the five winners chosen as Book of the Year, announced at an awards ceremony in London every January.
Launched in 1971 as the Whitbread Literary Awards, they became the Whitbread Book Awards in 1985, with Costa taking over in 2006.
In 2012 we launched the Costa Short Story Award, given to a single story and not voted for against the other categories. The public votes for the winner from six shortlisted stories selected by our five judges and published on this website. If you’d like to take part, you can just download the stories to read or listen to them at your leisure and then cast a vote for your favourite.
The voting is now open for the 2013 Costa Short Story Award and all six shortlisted stories are available HERE for you to download and enjoy!
Bring Up the Bodies by novelist Hilary Mantel has won the title of 2012 Costa Book of the Year.

Aaargh spoke too soon. Sorry but you can't listen to them just yet. Issue being resolved. It was all going so well. Technology, eh?
