Czech Centres and the Literary Section of the Arts and Theatre Institute (ATI), Prague, announce the 5th year of the International Competition for Young Translators – The Susanna Roth Prize, named after the celebrated Swiss translator Susanna Roth (1950 – 1997) who made a significant contribution to the promotion of contemporary Czech literature abroad.

The competition is open to young translators up to the age of forty. The task is to translate a significant extract (circa 10 pages) of as yet untranslated contemporary Czech prose published in the Czech Republic between November 2017 – November 2018. This year’s abstract is taken from the novel Probudím se na Šibuji by Anna Cima.

Previously published extracts are unacceptable. A jury in each country taking part will select one winner.

The winner will be awarded with a trip to the Czech Republic including (which will include attending ) specialist seminars.

Deadline: 31 March 2019
