Callil and Cartwright among judges for Booker international prize

Publisher, writer and critic Carmen Callil and novelist Justin Cartwright will judge next year's Man Booker International Prize. The panel will be chaired by writer, academic and rare book dealer Dr Rick Gekoski.

There are no submissions from judges and a shortlist of approximately 15 books will be announced in spring 2011. The winner of the prize will be revealed in early summer 2011, with the prize presented at a ceremony in July 2011.

Fiammetta Rocco, administrator of the prize, said: "The three judges of the 2011 Man Booker International Prize are drawn from the world of letters around the globe. Between them they have a lifetime's experience as writers, editors, publishers, academics and scholars, as well as readers, and will bring considerable knowledge, enthusiasm and a high standard of excellence to the task before them."

The prize is worth £60,000 and awarded every two years to a living author who has published fiction either originally in English or whose work is generally available in translation in the English language. If applicable, the winner of the award can choose for the translator of their work to receive £15,000.
