The Kenzaburō Ōe Prize (
) is a Japanese literary award sponsored by
Kodansha (
) and established in 2006 in memory of two anniversaries: the 100th
anniversary of Kodansha's establishment and the 50th anniversary of the writing life of
Kenzaburō Ōe (
). The award is for Japanese literary novels published in the last
year. The wining work is selected by Kenzaburō Ōe who is the only judge. The winner
receives no cash award, but the winning novel will be translated into other languages such as
English, French and German for publication. Kenzaburō Ōe has an open conversation with the
winner.
Since one of the aims of this award is the promotion of Japanese novels of the younger
generation which are the representations of words of the Japanese intellectuals, this prize is
awarded to the best novel which contains the best 'literary words' with possibilities and results
judged by Ōe.
