All too often, literary prizes are dominated by men. That's why awards like the Baileys Women's Prize For Fiction are so important.
Set up in 1996, the Prize aims to redress the gender imbalance in the industry by giving female authors the recognition they deserve.
Each year, the Baileys Women's Prize For Fiction is awarded for the best novel of the year written by a woman. Any woman writing in English – whatever her nationality, country of residence, age or subject matter – is eligible.
This year, you can be among the first to find out who's won the coveted award by watching a live steam on The Huffington Post UK.
The ceremony will be available to watch via the video above from 6.45pm on Wednesday 3 June.
This year’s shortlisted nominees include five previously shortlisted authors and one debut novelist:
Kamila Shamsie - A God in Every Stone
Laline Paull - The Bees
Anne Tyler - A Spool of Blue Thread
Sarah Waters - The Paying Guests
Rachel Cusk - Outline
Ali Smith - How To Be Both
The winner will receive an anonymously endowed cheque for £30,000 and a limited edition bronze figurine known as a ‘Bessie’, created and donated by the artist Grizel Niven.
