Part of the British Book Awards, the British Book Award for Writer of the Year is also known as the deciBel Writer of the Year.

This might appear to be unecessary duplication as there is already a British Book Award for Author of the Year, but in this case the award is for "a writer of fiction, narrative non-fiction or poetry who is of African, Caribbean or Asian descent and has made the greatest contribution towards or impact on the literary year". Note that deciBel is an Arts Council England programme which "works to support and raise the profile of artists of African, Asian and Caribbean descent in England".
