Booker Prize

The Booker Prize for Fiction is awarded each year for a novel written by a citizen of the Commonwealth or the Republic of Ireland. Established by Booker plc in 1968. To maintain the consistent excellence of the prize, judges are selected from critics, writers and academics. Since 2002 it is known as the "Man Booker prize", reflecting sponsorship by an investment company, the Man Group plc.
