Dayton Peace Prize

The Dayton Literary Peace Prize Foundation was established to advance peace through literature. Nominated works should focus on peace:
  • increasing understanding between and among people as individuals or within and between families, communities, nations, ethnic groups, cultures and religions. Works should have enduring literary value and should appeal to a variety of audiences.
  • ending or seeking to end conflict—personal, national or international,
  • establishing concord between and among people, or
  • showing consequences of persons, nations or institutions recklessly disrupting personal harmony or universal accord.
