Administered by the Royal Society of Literature the Winifred Holtby Memorial Prize was awarded between the years 1967 and 2002 for the best regional novel of the year. It had been founded by Vera Brittain in memory of her friend and fellow author Winifred Holtby, who died in 1935 at the age of only thirty-seven, and was best remembered for her postumous novel South Riding, which portrayed life in her native Yorkshire.

The Winifred Holtby Memorial Prize is now longer awarded and has now been replaced by the Ondaatje Prize.
