  Arthur C Clarke Award  
The Arthur C. Clarke Award is a juried award, sponsored initially by Arthur C. Clarke (author of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Childhood's End, and other seminal works). It is given to the best SF novel published each year in the UK (not necessarily by a British writer).
Scope
SF novels published in the UK.
What
Originally £1000, donated by Clarke; the amount increased to £2001 in 2001 and increases by £1 each year so the total is always the same as the year. The trophy is an engraved bookend.
Process
The winning book is chosen by a panel of judges currently invited from the British Science Fiction Association, the Science Fiction Foundation and the SCI-FI-LONDON film festival.
