Man Booker Prize Winners List PDF (1969-2018) | Static GK 2018 PDF | The Man Booker Prize for Fiction (formerly known as the Booker–McConnell Prize and commonly known simply as the Booker Prize) is a literary prize awarded each year for the best original novel written in the English language and published in the UK. The winner of the Man Booker Prize is generally assured international renown and success; therefore, the prize is of great significance for the book trade. From its inception, only novels written by Commonwealth, Irish, and South African (and later Zimbabwean) citizens were eligible to receive the prize; in 2014, however, this eligibility was widened to any English-language novel—a change which proved controversial.
In 1993, to mark the prize’s 25th anniversary, a “Booker of Bookers” Prize was given. Three Judges chose Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children, the 1981 winner, as “the best novel out of all the winners.
Similarly, The Best of the Booker was awarded in 2008 to celebrate the prize’s 40th anniversary.
The prize money awarded with the Booker Prize was originally £21,000, and was subsequently raised to £50,000 in 2002.
In 1969, PH Newby became the first man to win the Booker Prize, for Something to Answer for.
In 1970, Bernice Rubens became the first woman to win the Booker Prize, for The Elected Member.
The rules of the Booker changed in 1971; previously, it had been awarded retrospectively to books published prior to the year in which the award was given. In 1971 the year of eligibility was changed to the same as the year of the award.
Historically, the winner of the Man Booker Prize had been required to be a citizen of the Commonwealth of Nations, the Republic of Ireland, or Zimbabwe. It was announced on 18 September 2013 that future Man Booker Prize awards would consider authors from anywhere in the world, so long as their work was in English and published in the UK.
Following this expansion, the first winner not from the Commonwealth, Ireland, or Zimbabwe was American Paul Beatty in 2016. Another American, George Saunders, won The Man Booker Prize in 2017.
The Man, Asian Literary Prize was an annual literary award between 2007 and 2012, given to the best novel by an Asian writer, either written in English or translated into English, and published in the previous calendar year. It was announced in October 2012 that Man Group would no longer sponsor the prize after the 2012 winner was announced in 2013.
