Leapfrog Global Fiction Prize


Leapfrog Press is an award-winning and prize-giving independent publisher of critically acclaimed books. Committed to the championing of outstanding writers from all walks of life – new voices and old, underrepresented and diverse – our goal is to enrich our shared cultural life and heritage with storytelling that addresses the many pressing issues of both our time and of times past.

Leapfrog Press publishes authors from all around the globe, and our annual Leapfrog Global Fiction Prize for Adult and Young Adult | Middle Grade Fiction guarantees global publication in the English-speaking world. Past winners have been both debut and seasoned authors writing across a wide spectrum of genre fiction; from short stories dabbling in magical realism to cutting crime novels and speculative climate narratives.

We believe that publishing books has never been more important, and we strive to support our authors through the process with attentive editorial practice, compelling design and creative marketing and promotion.

We aim to make all our manufacturing as sustainable as possible using FSC certified papers and best printing practices.
