About the Award Print E-mail

The Dyankov Translation Award is a prize given annually (beginning 2007) for outstanding translation of a work of contemporary literary fiction from English to Bulgarian. The winner receives $2000. Every literary translator who meets the Award criteria can apply regardless of her/his citizenship. For current Award information, please visit the Contest section.

"The Award is named for Krustan Dyankov (1933-1999), a renowned Bulgarian translator of American literature. He translated works by numerous important authors, among them John Steinbeck, John Updike, Erskine Caldwell, John Cheever and William Faulkner."
