And Now, the French-American Foundation Award
I believe I posted about this a few weeks ago, but with the deadline coming up quick, it’s worth mentioning again:
The Florence Gould Foundation and the French-American Foundation are currently accepting submissions for their Annual Translation Prizes.
This year the foundation will present a $10 000 cash award for the best English translation of French in both fiction and non-fiction.
Translations for consideration must have been published for the first time in the United States between January 1 and December 31, 2009 and must be submitted, accompanied by the French original work by December 31, 2009 (one French copy and one English copy).
All categories of work are eligible in fiction and nonfiction, with the exception of poetry, technical, scientific and reference works, and children’s literature. The prizes will be announced and presented in the spring of 2010.
All submissions should be sent to:
The French-American Foundation
28 West 44th Street, Suite 1420
New York, New York 10036
Each submission must be sent with the corresponding submission form. This form should include required contact information for both French and American publishers (editorial and publicity departments) and for the translator.
Submissions will not be considered without duly filled submission form. For inquiries, please contact:
