New Zealand Post Katherine Mansfield Prize
The New Zealand Post Katherine Mansfield Prize, formerly known as the Katherine Mansfield Menton Fellowship and then the Meridian Energy Katherine Mansfield Memorial Fellowship, is one of New Zealand's foremost literary awards. Named after Katherine Mansfield, one of New Zealand's leading historical writers, the award gives winners (fellows, whether male or female) funding towards transport to and accommodation in Menton, France, where Katherine Mansfield went when her health declined.
The prize is open since 1970 to New Zealand citizens and residents whose fiction, poetry, literary non-fiction, children’s fiction or playwriting has had favourable impact. Unlike the Montana New Zealand Book Awards, which are the other widely known New Zealand literary awards, the Katherine Mansfield Prize is to an individual to develop their future work, rather than for a specific already-published work.
