The Guardian Fiction Prize was the original incarnation of the oldest and best-established of awards sponsored by any newspaper.[1][2] Founded in 1965 by the The Guardian it recognized one book per annum in the field of fiction by a British or Commonwealth writer published in the United Kingdom, running for thirty-three years in this format.

1999 saw the Guardian Fiction Prize relaunched as the Guardian First Book Award, which includes non-fiction and only considers début works.[3]
