MEET THE 2022/2023 OXFORD BIG READ GLOBAL WINNERS
INSPIRED BY READING
This year, student champions participating in Oxford Big Read selected books of their choice from lists of qualifying OUP readers. The students’ reading selections reflect both classic and contemporary themes. Winning submissions demonstrated thoughtful design, well-crafted essays, and critical thinking.
Participating branches of Oxford University Press including Hong Kong, India, Turkey and Pakistan, received thousands of submissions through participating schools and institutions. The winners became semi-finalists in the regional Oxford Big Read Global Campaign. Below, you will meet the winners of our fourth annual regional campaign!
