Cash Prizes for Translators & Authors

In great news for translators of poetry and fiction, today it was announced that Amazon will begin funding the Best Translated Book Award given each year by Three Percent at the University of Rochester.  Both the translators and the authors will receive $5,000.

Publisher's Weekly article can be found here.

In past years, SPD-distributed books have been well-represented on both the long and the short list for the Best Translated Book Award, so with luck one of the many wonderful translators connected to SPD publishers may take home a substantial prize soon!
