Award description

The Newman Prize for Chinese Literature was established in 2008 by Peter Gries, director of the Institute for U.S.-China Issues at the University of Oklahoma. The first major American award for Chinese literature, the Newman Prize is awarded every two years. It is granted solely on the basis of literary merit, and any living author writing in Chinese is eligible for recommendation. The Prize honors Harold J. and Ruth Newman, whose generosity enabled the establishment of the OU Institute for US-China Issues.

Nominations and Ceremony

Nominations for candidates and the selection of the winner are both handled by an international jury of distinguished experts, based on a transparent voting process. The winner is awarded US $10,000 and a plaque, and is invited to the University of Oklahoma to participate in an award ceremony and academic activities.[1]
