3 Rules 1 Eligibility Note work means a novel or collection of short stories throughout. a) The English translation of any work in print or electronic format written originally in a language other than English and published in the UK by an imprint formally established in the UK (see 1b below) is eligible. The imprint must publish a list of at least two contemporary literary fiction works by different authors each year. These two will not include a work by the publisher him/herself. If the publisher is a company, the two will not include the person who owns the majority shareholding or otherwise controls the company. b) In determining whether the work is published in the UK by an imprint formally established in the UK it must comply with all of the following: i. The imprint sells its list in pounds sterling and where sold in print its books are distributed through national (UK) retail outlets, and ii. The imprint has its principal place of business in the UK and is subject to UK registration and regulation including the primary liability to pay tax in the UK on all of its trading activities as a publisher, and iii. That the work in question is one for which the publisher has been allocated a UK International Standard Book Number, and iv.

However, publishers must be able to provide evidence that the book was originally written in another language and then translated into English. f) Self-published works are not eligible where the author is the publisher. If the publisher is a company which has been specifically set up to publish the work in question, and/or the author is the person who owns the majority shareholding or otherwise controls the company, the work is ineligible. g) No entry shall be ineligible because its author has previously won either this prize or any other prize. h) Both the author and the translator of the work must be living at the time it is submitted or called in, and, subject always to the discretion of the Administrator of the prize (see also 1j below) the work will only remain eligible for so long as its author and translator are both alive through the various stages of the prize up to the time of the public announcement of the winner. i) A work by an author that is published in separate volumes is only eligible if the volumes are published under a single ISBN. j) The decision of the Administrator of the prize as to whether a work is eligible shall be final and binding and no correspondence will be entered into. 2 Key stages of the prize a) General i.
