The Susanna Roth Award is an annual competition for beginner translators up to 40 years of age, whose task is to translate a piece of contemporary Czech prose. Contestants must be citizens or permanent residents in one of the participating countries below the age of 40 and cannot have published a book translation in the language of the given country. The prize is a residency in the Czech Republic and includes attending the annual Bohemistics Seminar and a translation workshop.
