Congratulations to the translators shortlisted in this year’s NSW Premier’s Translation Prize. The prize was proposed by PEN Sydney and is funded by Multicultural NSW, with a trophy sponsored by PEN Sydney.
The prize is intended to acknowledge the contribution made to literary culture by Australian translators, and recognizes the vital role that literary translators play in enabling writers and readers to communicate across cultures throughout the world. The prize is offered only to translators who translate into English works written in other languages.
The prize is awarded for a translation in book form. Nominated works can be works of fiction, creative non-fiction, or volumes of poetry.
Tickets to attend the awards night on 22 May at the State Library are free.
