Rossica Translation Prize
The Rossica Translation Prize is a biennial award given to an exceptional published translation of a literary work from Russian into English. It is the only prize in the world for Russian to English literary translations.
The prize was inaugurated in 2003 by Academia Rossica and has been presented since 2005. The distinction comes with a cash prize, which is split between the translator and the publisher at the discretion of the panel of judges. In previous years, the prize has been awarded in London on the 24th of May, the birth date of Saints Cyril and Methodius, creators of the Slavic alphabet. It is now awarded as part of the SLOVO Russian Literature Festival. Excerpts of the winning and runner-up translations are printed in an accompanying Rossica journal. Academia Rossica also awards the annual Rossica Young Translators Prize for anyone under 25.
