Inaugural winner Ismail Kadare
Awarded forBest work of fiction translated into English and published in the UK or Ireland
CountryUnited Kingdom
Presented byBooker Prize Foundation
First awarded2005; 19 years ago (2005)

The International Booker Prize (formerly known as the Man Booker International Prize) is an international literary award hosted in the United Kingdom. The introduction of the International Prize to complement the Man Booker Prize, as the Booker Prize was then known, was announced in June 2004.[1] Sponsored by the Man Group, from 2005 until 2015 the award was given every two years to a living author of any nationality for a body of work published in English or generally available in English translation.[2] It rewarded one author's "continued creativity, development and overall contribution to fiction on the world stage",[3] and was a recognition of the writer's body of work rather than any one title.

Since 2016, the award has been given annually to a single work of fiction or collection of short stories, translated into English and published in the United Kingdom or Ireland, with a £50,000 prize for the winning title, shared equally between author and translator.[4][5]

Crankstart, the charitable foundation of Sir Michael Moritz and his wife, Harriet Heyman began supporting The Booker Prizes on 1 June 2019. From this date, the prizes were known as The Booker Prize and The International Booker Prize. Of their support for The Booker Prize Foundation and the prizes, Moritz commented: "Neither of us can imagine a day where we don’t spend time reading a book. The Booker Prizes are ways of spreading the word about the insights, discoveries, pleasures and joy that spring from great fiction".



Whereas the Man Booker Prize was open only to writers from the Commonwealth, Ireland, and Zimbabwe, the International Prize was open to all nationalities who had work available in English including translations.[6] The award was worth £60,000 and given every two years to a living author's entire body of literature, similar to the Nobel Prize for Literature.[3] The Man Booker International Prize also allowed for a separate award for translation. If applicable, the winning author could choose their translators to receive a prize sum of £15,000.[7]

The 2005 inaugural winner of the prize was Albanian writer Ismail Kadare. Praising its concerted judgement, the journalist Hephzibah Anderson noted that the Man Booker International Prize was "fast becoming the more significant award, appearing an ever more competent alternative to the Nobel".[8]

2016 onwards[edit]

In July 2015 it was announced that the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize would be disbanded.[4] The prize money from that award would be folded into the Man Booker International Prize, which would henceforth act similarly to the Independent prize: awarding an annual book of fiction translated into English, with the £50,000 prize split between author and translator.[15] Each shortlisted author and translator receives £2,500.[16] Its aim is to encourage publishing and reading of quality works in translation and to highlight the work of translators. Judges select a longlist of 12 or 13 books in March (“the Booker Dozen”), followed by a shortlist of six in April,[17] with the winner announced in May.[18]

Nominations 2005–2015[edit]


The inaugural Man Booker International Prize was judged by John Carey (Chair), Alberto Manguel and Azar Nafisi.[29] The nominees were announced on 2 June 2005 at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.[3] Albanian novelist Ismail Kadare was named the inaugural International Prize winner in 2005.[29] Head judge, Professor John Carey said Kadare is "a universal writer in the tradition of storytelling that goes back to Homer."[29] Kadare said he was "deeply honoured" at being awarded the prize.[29] Kadare was also able to select a translator to receive an additional prize of £15,000.[29] The writer received his award in Edinburgh on 27 June.[29]



The 2007 prize was judged by Elaine Showalter, Nadine Gordimer and Colm Tóibin.[6] The nominees for the second Man Booker International Prize were announced on 12 April 2007 at Massey College in Toronto.[6] Nigerian author Chinua Achebe was awarded the International Prize for his literary career in 2007.[30] Judge Nadine Gordimer said Achebe was "the father of modern African literature" and that he was "integral" to world literature.[30] Achebe received his award on 28 June in Oxford.[30]



The 2009 prize was judged by Jane Smiley (Chair), Amit Chaudhuri and Andrey Kurkov.[31] The nominees for the third Man Booker International Prize were announced on 18 March 2009 at The New York Public Library.[32] Canadian short story writer Munro was named the winner of the prize in 2009 for her lifetime body of work.[31] Judge Jane Smiley said picking a winner had been "a challenge", but Munro had won the panel over.[31] On Munro's work, Smiley said "Her work is practically perfect. Any writer has to gawk when reading her because her work is very subtle and precise. Her thoughtfulness about every subject is so concentrated."[31] Munro, who said she was "totally amazed and delighted" at her win, received the award at Trinity College Dublin on 25 June.[2][31]



The 2011 prize was judged by Rick Gekoski (Chair), Carmen Callil (withdrew in protest over choice of winner) and Justin Cartwright.[35] The nominees for the fourth Man Booker International Prize were announced on 30 March 2011 at a ceremony in Sydney, Australia.[36] John le Carré asked to be removed from consideration, saying he was "flattered", but that he does not compete for literary prizes.[37] However, judge Rick Gekoski said although he was disappointed that le Carré wanted to withdraw, his name would remain on the list.[37] American novelist Roth was announced as the winner on 18 May 2011 at the Sydney Writers' Festival.[38] Of his win, Roth said "This is a great honour and I'm delighted to receive it."[38] The writer said he hoped the prize would bring him to the attention of readers around the world who are not currently familiar with his body of work.[38] Roth received his award in London on 28 June; however, he was unable to attend in person due to ill health, so he sent a short video instead.[38][39] After Roth was announced as the winner, Carmen Callil withdrew from the judging panel, saying "I don't rate him as a writer at all... in 20 years' time will anyone read him?" Callil later wrote an editorial in The Guardian explaining her position and why she chose to leave the panel.[7][40]



The 2013 prize was judged by Christopher Ricks (Chair), Elif Batuman, Aminatta Forna, Yiyun Li and Tim Parks.[41] The nominees for the fifth Man Booker International Prize were announced on 24 January 2013.[42] Marilynne Robinson was the only writer out of the ten nominees who had been nominated for the prize before.[42] Lydia Davis, best known as a short story writer, was announced as the winner of the 2013 prize on 22 May at a ceremony at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.[43] The official announcement of Davis' award on the Man Booker Prize website described her work as having "the brevity and precision of poetry." Judging panel chair Christopher Ricks commented that "There is vigilance to her stories, and great imaginative attention. Vigilance as how to realise things down to the very word or syllable; vigilance as to everybody's impure motives and illusions of feeling."[44]



The 2015 prize was judged by Marina Warner (Chair), Nadeem Aslam, Elleke Boehmer, Edwin Frank and Wen-chin Ouyang.[45] The nominees for the sixth Man Booker International Prize were announced on 24 March 2015.[45] László Krasznahorkai became the first author from Hungary to receive the Man Booker award. The prize was given to recognise his "achievement in fiction on the world stage". British author Marina Warner, who chaired the panel of judges that selected Krasznahorkai for the award, compared his writing to Kafka and Beckett. Krasznahorkai's translators, George Szirtes and Ottilie Mulzet, shared the £15,000 translators' prize.[46]


Nominations 2016–present[edit]

The chair of each year's judging panel is shown in bold text.


The nominees for the seventh Man Booker International Prize were announced on 14 April 2016.[48] The six nominees were chosen from a longlist of thirteen.[49][50] Han became the first Korean author to win the prize and, under the new format for 2016, Smith became the first translator to share the prize. British journalist Boyd Tonkin, who chaired the judging panel, said that the decision was unanimous. He also said of the book "in a style both lyrical and lacerating, it reveals the impact of this great refusal both on the heroine herself and on those around her. This compact, exquisite and disturbing book will linger long in the minds, and maybe the dreams, of its readers."[51]

The longlist for the eighth Man Booker International Prize was announced on 14 March 2017, and the shortlist on 20 April 2017. The winner was announced on 14 June 2017.[52][53] Grossman became the first Israeli author to win the prize, sharing the £50,000 award with translator Jessica Cohen. Nick Barley, who is the director of the Edinburgh International Book Festival, described the book as "an ambitious high-wire act of a novel [that] shines a spotlight on the effects of grief, without any hint of sentimentality. The central character is challenging and flawed, but completely compelling." The novel won over 126 other contenders.[54]

Bettany Hughes said of Celestial Bodies that, "We felt we were getting access to ideas and thoughts and experiences you aren’t normally given in English.
