The award is given for works written in Russian or for literary translation into Russian, published in New World magazine. The jury consists of writers, journalists, publishers and award coordinators.

Winners in each category are awarded the original Ernest Hemingway Literary Prize winner’s medal and a diploma. After the awarding ceremony, the organizers make a TV program about the books of the winners.
