A Basque in Boise

Etxepare-Laboral Kutxa Translation Prize 2017 for publishers/translators

The goal of this call launched by the Etxepare Basque Institute and Laboral Kutxa is to award a prize to a published translation of a literary work originally written in Basque. The prize will reward the quality of the translation and the publisher’s promotional strategy. For that reason, the publisher and the translator will share the prize.

The prize will be worth 4,000 Euros. The publisher and translator will each receive half of that amount.

As well as the prize, the prize-winners will receive a grant of up to 2,000 Euros to come to the prize-giving ceremony and continuing with the promotional strategy in the country of publication (presentations, events, publicity campaigns, media interviews…).
