Watch the 2020 Stella Prize announcement

Our 2020 online announcement is hosted by Patricia Karvelas and features the Hon. Julia Gillard AC, Stella judging panel chair Louise Swinn, all six shortlisted authors, and Jess Hill, winner of the 2020 Stella Prize for See What You Made Me Do.

Now in its eighth year, the Stella Prize awards one author with a $50,000 prize, thanks to the generous support of the Wilson Foundation. This buys a writer some measure of financial independence and thus time – that most undervalued yet necessary commodity for women – to focus on their writing.

Presented in partnership with the Wheeler Centre and Guardian Live.
