The Nick Clarke Award is now entering its fourth year.

This hugely popular prize was first launched in 2008 at The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival, and celebrates the single best broadcast interview of each year. Judges of the award are looking for interviews that left a strong impression on the audience, that provided a deeper understanding of their subject matter, or that were particularly memorable.

Last year's excellent winner was PD James, for her interview of BBC Mark Thompson, Director-General of the BBC on The Today Programme.

To be considered for the Award, please send one copy of an interview conducted between 13th July 2010 and 31st July 2011 to the address below by the 8th September. One entry per programme and person, and the interview must be submitted exactly as broadcast.

The winner will be announced at this year's Times Cheltenham Literature Festival on Sunday 10th of October. The winner will receive a dozen bottles of good claret - which Nick himself would have enjoyed.

Entries should be submitted to the address below or by e-mail to gillian.dear@bbc.co.uk.
