We are most grateful for their generous support.


Our Partners

The Portico Prize is run by the Portico Library in association with their Pennine Literary Partners, comprising cultural organisations across Northern England: Manchester Metropolitan University, The Leeds Library, The Athenaeum Liverpool, The Newcastle Lit & Phil, The Armitt Museum, Chester University and The Manchester Children's Book Festival. These partner institutions share the aims of the Portico Prize and are involved in legacy author events throughout the North of England.

The Chorlton Bookshop is our chosen partner bookseller for the current Portico Prize and will be responsible for book sales at the Awards Dinner as well as collaborating in the organisation of legacy events in leading up to and following the Prize.
