National Book Award for Fiction

National Book Award for Fiction

The National Book Award for Fiction has been given since 1950, as part of the National Book Awards, which are given annually by the National Book Foundation. Of all the awards given, the Fiction award is the only one that has been given consistently for the entire history of the Award.[1] For some years, such as 1980-84, two books were chosen, as the paperback and hardcover winners of those years.

The National Book Foundation has announces the finalists each year in mid-October. On the day of the final ceremony, which is held in November, one winner is chosen among the finalists. This winner is given $10,000 and a bronze sculpture; finalists receive $1,000, a medal, and a citation from the panel jury.[2]
