The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has announced the launch of the EBRD Literature Prize 2022, in cooperation with the British Council.
The prize will be awarded to both writer and translator for the best work of literary fiction (including collections of short stories by a single author), written originally in any language of the EBRD’s countries of operations, including the six Eastern partner countries, and translated into English.
The first prize, worth €20,000, will be equally divided between the winning author and translator. The two runner-up books will receive a prize of €4,000 each, again equally split between author and translator.
The submission deadline for publishers is 30 November 2021.
