Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award is the largest prize worldwide for a single work of fiction published in English. Nominations are submitted by public libraries worldwide. The annual award is 100,000.

Operators

The Award is a joint initiative of Dublin City Council (the municipal government of Dublin, Ireland) and the productivity improvement company IMPAC, and is administered by Dublin City Public Libraries.

Qualification

The prize is open to novels written in any language and by authors of any nationality, provided the work has been published in English or English translation.

The year an award is given is post-dated by two years from the date of publication. Thus, to win an award in 2007, the work must have been published between 1 January 2005 and 31 December 2005. Or if it is an English translation, first published in its original language between 1 January 2001 and 31 December 2005, and first published in English translation between 1 January 2005 and 31 December 2005.[1]

Process

Dublin City Public Libraries seek nominations from public libraries from major cities across the world.

The longlist is announced in October or November of each year, and the shortlist (up to 10 titles) is announced in March or April of the year following.

The longlist and shortlist are chosen by an international panel of judges which rotates each year. Allen Weinstein was the non-voting chair of the panel from 1996 to 2003. Eugene R. Sullivan is the non-voting chair from 2004 to the current date.[1]

The winner of the award is announced each June.
