(AALITRA Translation Prize, 2016)
The winners in the AALITRA Translation Prize (2016) will be announced at an Awards Ceremony to be held at the China Cultural Centre Sydney (Level 1, 151 Castlereagh St, Sydney) on Tuesday 13 September at 6.30pm.
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 2016, the focus language was Chinese. The prose text for translation is by A Yi (阿乙). The poetry text is by Rong Rong (荣荣).
Prizes in each section have been donated by the China Cultural Centre in Sydney.
Free admission. Refreshments will be served. RSVP by 3 September to email@example.com or (02) 8228 3050.
