The winners in the AALITRA Translation Prize (2018) will be announced at an Awards Ceremony to be held at the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in Melbourne (72 Queens Road, Melbourne) on Thursday 20 September at 6pm.
The AALITRA Translation Prize aims to acknowledge the wealth of literary translation skills present in the Australian community. Prizes are awarded for a translation of a selected prose text and for a translation of a selected poem, with the focus on a different language each time the prize is offered. Winners will be awarded a cash prize, a book prize, and one year’s membership of AALITRA. Prize-winning entries will be read aloud at the Awards Ceremony, and will be published in the Association’s peer-reviewed open-access journal, The AALITRA Review along with a few words from each of the translators.
In 2018, the focus language was Indonesian.
We are grateful to the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in Melbourne for its support of the AALITRA Translation Prize (2018). Cash prizes provided by AALITRA. Book prizes have been donated by Text Publishing, Giramondo Publishing and Brian Nelson (AALITRA Past President).
