Man Asian Booker turns focus on English writing

The Man Asian Literary Prize has been restructured, to award novels written by "a citizen of an Asian country and first published in English in 2010". Translations into English are also eligible, as long as they are first published in English this year. The prize previously went to books that had not yet been published in English.

The prize money has been trebled from $10,000 (£6,580) to $30,000, and the translation prize has nearly doubled, from $3,000 to $5,000.

Entry forms will be available later in the year, "around May" according to the organisers. Detailed rules for eligibility will be released soon.
