Dear all, and especially any Russianists who may be reading, this interesting message just came round. The website doesn't seem to have been updated for this year's competition but keep an eye out - if you're under 25 and translate from Russian, this might be for you!
Call for nominations: Rossica Young Translators Prize
I am writing to you in regards to the Rossica Young Translators Prize that will be awarded for the second time this year. Please see the below
link for further information about our project:
As there currently is an evident shortage of translators, our aim is to offer support to young people under 25 who are passionate about the world of translation and to encourage literary translation amongst those who study and speak Russian in English speaking countries. With the help of this award we would like to nurture a new generation of Russian to English translators.
Currently we are making further efforts to advertise the event, as we would very much like to give students from all over the world the chance to take part in our competition. If you are interested in our project, we would be very grateful for any kind of support, for example by sending us email contacts for universities and institutes in North America, where Russian and Literary Translation are taught, or by advertising our project on your website. Any help would be appreciated.
