In May 2013, Notting Hill Editions announced an annual literary prize for the best essay in the English language, open to anyone in the world, of between 2,000 and 8,000 words, published or unpublished, on any subject. The award is named in honour of William Hazlitt (1778-1830), great master of the miscellaneous essay. The first prize was awarded to Michael Ignatieff for Raphael Lemkin and Genocide.
