REMINDER: The closing date for the annual John Dryden Translation Competition is 10 February 2020

A reminder that the closing date for the annual John Dryden Translation Competition is February 10 2020.  The competition awards three prizes and commendations if merited,  for unpublished literary translations from any language. The translations may also draw on any source text comprising poetry, prose or drama from any period. The method of electronic payment for the prize-winners will be confirmed in January.

Prize-winners are announced in the summer on the BCLA website and prizes are presented thereafter every year at the BCLA ‘AGM and Colloquy’.  Winning entries are eligible to be published in full on the website, and extracts from winning entries are also eligible for publication in the journal Comparative Critical Studies.

Members of the BCLA are entitled to one entry free of charge; all three prize-winners are also entitled to BCLA membership.
