Prize for literary work translated from Basque

Laboral Kutxa and the Etxepare Basque Institute have launched a prize for a published translation of a literary work originally written in Basque.

The prize of €4,000 will reward the quality of the translation itself and the publisher’s promotional strategy. The prize will thus be divided equally between the publisher and the translator.

In addition, the prize-winners will receive a grant of up to €2,000 to attend the award ceremony and to continue promoting the book in the country of publication (presentations, events, publicity campaigns, media interviews etc.).

Translators, publishing houses and others in publishing, literature or translation can send in an application before 1 July 2015. The translation must have been published in 2014.
