Welcome to The Booker Prizes
Welcome to the home of The Booker Prizes with exclusive news, interviews and articles about The Booker Prize for Fiction and The International Booker Prize.
The Booker Prizes reward the finest in fiction, highlighting great books to readers. The symmetrical relationship between The Booker Prize for Fiction and The International Booker Prize ensures that The Booker Prizes honour fiction and writing on a global basis.
Each prize has the power to transform the winner’s career and both The Booker Prize and The International Booker Prize are supported by Crankstart, the charitable foundation of Sir Michael Moritz and his wife, Harriet Heyman.
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.’
The new arrangement began on 1 June 2019 which marked the conclusion of 18 years of successful and generous sponsorship by Man Group.
