Entries are invited for the 2011 John Dryden Translation Competition, a long-running literary translation prize jointly sponsored by the British Comparative Literature Association and the British Centre for Literary Translation.
Entries must be translations of (extracts from) literary works of any period and from any language into English. There are cash prizes and winning entries will be published. The existence of copyright in any work places no restriction on its translation but only, in some cases, on publication of a translation. Translations of work previously translated are acceptable.
Entries must be the original work of the translator and must be unpublished. Entries may be the collective work of any number of translators.
There are no limitations on entrants with respect to age, nationality, place of residence, or professional status. Submissions and judging are strictly anonymous.
The closing date for receipt of entries (which must be by post) is 14 February 2011.
Further details can be found on the website. Good luck to any readers of this blog who decide to enter!
