The Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction was set up to celebrate excellence, originality and accessibility in writing by women throughout the world. Known from 1996 to 2012 as the Orange Prize for Fiction and in 2013 as the Women's Prize for Fiction, it is the UK’s most prestigious annual book award for fiction written by a woman and also provides a range of educational, literacy or research initiatives to support reading and writing.

The Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction is awarded annually for the best full novel of the year written by a woman and published in the UK. Any woman writing in English - whatever her nationality, country of residence, age or subject matter - is eligible.

Only books published in the UK are eligible. To comply with this rule, books need to have a UK ISBN, have the price printed in pounds sterling and be distributed in the UK through established retail and / or online outlets.

All entries must be made by an established publishing house for adult titles. Self-published books are not eligible.
