For this year's prize, books published in a first UK edition between January and December 2000 will be eligible; a shortlist will be compiled early next year and the award made in spring 2001. It will be worth £10,000, split equally between author and translator. The judges are the writers Patricia Duncker and Elaine Feinstein; the head of arts and libraries at Essex County Council, Grace Kempster; Amanda Hopkinson, international literature officer at the Arts Council; and Boyd Tonkin, Independent literary editor.
