orange prize for fiction events

Now titled the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction, this event is one of the world’s most prestigious literary prizes, awarded annually for the best original full-length novel by a female author of any nationality, written in English and published in the UK in the preceding year. The winner of the prize receives £30,000, along with a bronze sculpture called the “Bessie”.

Yellow Yoyo was approached to both design and project manage, and was fortunate enough to do so for three years, creating each time unique and creative environments in which to host the literary event. Themes ranged from 1920s Spectacular and Garden Party – where the garden was literally built in a marquee – to River of Ink, complete with flowing type filled walkway and waterfall bandstand.

The Orange Prize for Fiction events designed by Yellow Yoyo have definitely been the best we have ever experienced from a design and management perspective. They make it pain free. You can’t say better than that! Ingrid Haskal – Production Manager, Orange
