November will now be when the Booker Prize 2023 winner is announced.

One of the most prestigious yearly prizes, the Booker Prize is granted to the best work of fiction written in English and released in the UK or Ireland the previous year. The Booker Prize winner is typically announced in mid-October, however this year it will now be announced at the end of November.
The location of this year’s Booker Prize award ceremony has also been altered; it will now take place at Old Billingsgate in London for the first time.

The “Booker Dozen,” the longlist for the 2023 Booker Prize, will be revealed on August 1; the shortlist will be revealed on September 21. Instead of the Serpentine Gallery as in previous years, the National Portrait Gallery in London will host the shortlist announcement this year. November 26, 2023 will mark the announcement of the winner.

According to The Bookseller, in response to the modification, the organizers stated: Commenting on the change, organisers said, as reported by The Bookseller, “The winner of the Booker Prize 2023 will receive ?50,000 as well as the recently named ’Iris’ trophy and can expect international recognition and a significant uplift in global sales. Translation rights have been sold in 26 languages for last year’s winner, Shehan Karunatilaka’s ‘The Seven Moons of Maali Almeida’, 24 of those since it won the Booker Prize in October 2022.”

A 2,500 pound reward will also be given to each author who made the short list.
The judges for this year’s competition include actor and twice-shortlisted writer Esi Edugyan, filmmaker Adjoa Andoh, novelist Mary Jean Chan, professor James Shapiro, and actor-writer Robert Webb.
