The European Union Prize for Literature (EUPL) is an annual initiative that awards emerging fiction writers from selected European countries.
The EUPL aims to promote the circulation and translation of literature amongst European countries, all the while highlighting Europe's creativity and diversity.
The EUPL is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, a programme which covers 41 countries.
In each participating country, national nominating organisations select one novel to be considered for the EUPL Prize. In the second round of deliberations, the seven-member European Jury selects an overall Prize winner and five special mentions.
Each year, to encourage the translation and circulation of literature in Europe, the EUPL publishes an anthology comprised of original and translated excerpts from the EUPL laureates' winning books.
No, writers cannot submit books directly to be considered for the Prize. The task of choosing the books/writers selected every year rests with the national nominating organisations.
No, age doesn't matter in the EUPL. The Prize is not designed to award young writers but to recognized emerging writer. The emerging nature of an author is not correlated to their age.
