Of Manchester University Press’ submissions, the judges said: “Manchester took big steps up the university press ladder in 2023, and strong growth in e-books and rights show its evolution into a digital and international publisher. Its arts and cultural studies list is increasingly visible in the trade too, backed up by excellent marketing and publicity that delivered best-ever TCM sales.’

Manchester University Press’ Sales and Marketing Director, Chris Hart, had the following to say of the news: “Our submission this year highlighted our achievements in trade books, marking a significant milestone in our journey as a publisher. Despite being only four years since the launch of the trade programme, we’ve already made excellent progress. I am very proud of what we have achieved so far and I have every confidence that we will continue to reach new heights.”
