The Man Booker Prize, which celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2013, aims to promote the finest in fiction by rewarding the best novel of the year written in English and published in the United Kingdom.
Have you published a novel you would like to submit for the 2016 prize? The deadline for submissions is Friday 4 March.
To maintain the consistent excellence of the Man Booker Prize, judges are chosen from a wide range of disciplines, including critics, writers and academics, but also poets, politicians and actors, all with a passion for quality fiction.
The winner of the Man Booker Prize receives £50,000 and, like all the shortlisted authors, a cheque for £2,500 and a designer bound copy of their book. Fulfilling one of the objectives of the prize – to encourage the widest possible readership for the best in literary fiction – the winner and the shortlisted authors now enjoy a dramatic increase in book sales worldwide.
