Guardian First Book Award issued before 1999 as Guardian Fiction Prize or Guardian Fiction Award

is awarded to new writing in fiction and afficher plus non-fiction.

Established in 1965 as the Guardian Fiction Award by The Guardian newspaper, the prize is worth £10,000 to the winner. In 1965 the prize money was 200 guineas (£210) and was awarded to a work of fiction by British or Commonwealth writer and published in the UK. The shortlist is announced in November each year and the winner in December. The selection is made by a panel of critics and writers, chaired by the literary editor of the Guardian. This is the oldest and best-established of the awards sponsored by a newspaper. Sponsorship of a literary prize by one newspaper has a somewhat negative effect on publicity since other newspapers are less willing to publicize the winner. In 1999 the nature and title of the prize was altered to Guardian First Book Award, being no longer restricted to fiction. It is rewarded to the best new literary talent, whether working in the field of fiction or non-fiction and across all genres.
