The Jewish Quarterly-Wingate Literary Prize is an annual British literary prize inaugurated in 1977. It is named after the host Jewish Quarterly and the prize's founder Harold Hyam Wingate.[1] The award recognizes Jewish and non-Jewish writers resident in the UK, British Commonwealth, Europe and Israel who "stimulate an interest in themes of Jewish concern while appealing to the general reader."[2] As of 2011 the winner receives £4,000.[1]

The Jewish Chronicle called it "British Jewry's top literary award,"[3] and Jewish World said it is a "prestigious literature prize."[4]
