About Us

This website is currently being revised. As of 1 February, the current ongoing nominations and new procedures for the EUPL 2022 can be found here again.

Since 2022, the EUPL is organised by the FEP and EIBF. Please contact info@euprizeliterature.eu with any questions.

The European Union Prize for Literature (EUPL), supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Commission, is an annual initiative to recognise the best emerging fiction writers in Europe.

The Prize aims to put the spotlight on the creativity and diverse wealth of Europe’s contemporary literature in the field of fiction, to promote the circulation of literature within Europe and to encourage greater interest in non-national literary works.

The works of the selected winners are promoted in the hopes to reach a wider and international audience, and to touch readers beyond national and linguistic borders.
