The prize is named in honour of the distinguished Australian poet Ron Pretty, who founded Five Islands Press in 1986. Ron published over 230 books of poetry by Australian poets, before retiring from Five Islands Press in 2007. Since this time, FIP has maintained its commitment to publishing fine Australian poetry, including the work of emerging and established poets.
