The AALITRA Translation Awards aim 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 source language each time the prize is offered.
In 2020, the source language was Greek. The prose text for translation was by Διονυσία Μούσουρα-Τσουκαλά (Dionysia Mousoura-Tsoukala). The poetry text was by Σ.Σ. Χαρκιανάκης (S. S. Charkianakis).
