It seems that we’re all thinking of the future: a record number of people from the UK to Argentina took the time to sit down and write down their thoughts on the topic.

We’re pleased to announce the winner and runner-up of New Philosopher Writers’ Award XV: The Future. Skye Cleary, a philosopher and editor of the American Philosophical Association blog, has taken out top spot with “Can we make love stay?”. Siobhan Lyons, a scholar in media and cultural studies and former winner of the Award, was awarded second place for “Imagining a future nostalgia”.

The list of finalists features many talented writers, philosophers, and poets: (in alphabetical order by surname):

Brooke Boland
Tim Campbell
Lior Chait
Skye Cleary
Oscar Daniell
P.D.R. Griffiths
Jeffrey Lieto
Siobhan Lyons
Eva Perroni
Amy Rubin

Thank you to everyone who took the time to put together a piece. Inevitably, there were many wonderful essays from talented writers didn’t make the shortlist – we encourage you not to lose heart and we hope to see more entries from you for future awards.

As you would be aware, the winner will receive $1,000 and both pieces will be published in the upcoming edition of New Philosopher.
