International Prize for Arabic Fiction


11a Harbut Road
London, UK

The International Prize for Arabic Fiction (IPAF) is an annual literary prize run with the support of the Booker Prize Foundation in London and funded by the TCA Abu Dhabi in the UAE.

The Prize was launched in Abu Dhabi in April 2007 with the intention to address the limited international availability of high-quality Arab fiction. The initiative was based on a suggestion that a prize modelled on the successful Man Booker Prize would encourage recognition of high-quality Arabic fiction, reward Arab writers and lead to increased international readership through translation.
