This annual prize acknowledges and encourages editors starting out on their careers.
It has been offered by the Mason Publishing Trust each year since 2011 to a graduate of the Diploma in Publishing (Applied).
The prize remembers Andrew Mason, a well-known editor who died in 2009. Mason was a widely admired book editor who worked on some of New Zealand’s most significant publications, and was literary editor of the New Zealand Listener from 1981 to 1991.
