The International Prize for Arabic Fiction (IPAF) is one of the most prestigious and important literary prizes in the Arab world.

Its aim is to reward excellence in contemporary Arabic creative writing and to encourage the readership of high quality Arabic literature internationally through the translation and publication of winning and shortlisted novels in other major languages.

In addition to the annual prize, IPAF supports literary initiatives and in 2009 launched its inaugural nadwa (writers’ workshop) for aspiring writers from across the Arab world.

The Prize is run with the support of the Booker Prize Foundation in London and funded by the Emirates Foundation for Philanthropy of Abu Dhabi, UAE.
