Die Booker-prys word jaarliks vir 'n boek wat deur 'n inwoner van die Britse Statebond of Ierland geskryf is toegeken.[1] Die prys is in 1968 deur Booker Plc ingestel. Om die kwaliteit van die prys te waarborg word die beoordelaars onder kritici, skrywers en akademici uitgesoek. Sedert 2002 staan die prys as die "Man Booker Prize for Fiction" bekend, na aanleiding van 'n borgskap deur die maatskappy Man Group plc.

Die wenner van die prys ontvang 'n bedrag van 50 000 pond sterling.[2]
