The French-American Foundation and the Florence Gould Foundation are pleased to invite you to participate in the 33rd Annual Translation Prize competition. A $10,000 award in fiction and a $10,000 award in nonfiction will be given in the spring of 2020 for excellent translations from French into English.

We will be accepting submissions through January 15, 2020.

Translations for consideration must have been published for the first time in the United States during the 2019 calendar year (between January 1 and December 31, 2019). All categories of fiction and nonfiction works are eligible, with the exception of poetry, technical, scientific and reference works, graphic novels, and children's literature.
Prize money will be bestowed at an Awards Ceremony in May-June 2020. In the event that the winning translator cannot attend the ceremony, the Foundation reserves the right to give the prize to a second choice finalist who is able to attend and promote the evening.
