The Booker Prizes are ways of spreading the word about the insights, discoveries, pleasures and joy that spring from great fiction. Whereas the Man Booker Prize was open only to writers from the Commonwealth , Ireland and Zimbabwe, the International Prize was open to all nationalities who had work available in English including translations. Praising its concerted judgement, the journalist Hephzibah Anderson noted that the Man Booker International Prize was "fast becoming the more significant award, appearing an ever more competent alternative to the Nobel". Its aim is to encourage publishing and reading of quality works in translation and to highlight the work of translators. Judges select a longlist of 12 or 13 books in March, followed by a shortlist of six in April, with the winner announced in May.
