Innovating public policy


News – Heywood Foundation Public Policy Prize

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Heywood Foundation Public Policy Prize. Submissions are now open, and prizes of up to £25,000 are available for the best and most thought-provoking answers. We will be announcing the final closing date for the competition later (though it is likely to be around the end of March) together with the full panel of judges, which already include the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Michael Gove, and Lord O’Donnell, one of Jeremy’s predecessors.

1679 is the current number of submissions. Go to the Contest section to create your own!
