Sir Arthur and The Clarke Award

The Arthur C. Clarke Award was established with a grant from Sir Arthur in 1986.

The prize money (initially £1,000) for the Arthur C. Clarke Award was to be given to the best science fiction novel published in Britain in the previous year. In 2001 the prize was increased to £2,001, and its value now matches the year (e.g., £2,011 in 2011).

Although neither Sir Arthur nor his foundation are currently involved with the award that bears his name, the Arthur C. Clarke Award still proudly carries on his tradition of creativity and imagination.
