Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission Prize for the Translation of Japanese Literature

Description

The Donald Keene Center of Japanese Culture at Columbia University annually awards up to $6,000 in Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission Prizes for the Translation of Japanese Literature. A prize is given for the best translation of a modern work or a classical work, or the prize is divided between equally distinguished translations. Translations must be of book-length Japanese works: novels, collections of short stories, manga, essays, memoirs, drama, or poetry. Submissions may be unpublished manuscripts, works in press, or books published during the three years prior to the prize year* (for the current prize, this means publication dates in 2018 and afterward). Prior recipients are eligible to submit new translations. Kindly visit the sponsorÔÇÖs website for more information.
