Dresden Poetry Prize

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Dresden Poetry Prize is a literary prize that has been awarded every two years by the city of Dresden since 1996 . The prize is awarded to a German , Czech , Austrian or Swiss author and is intended to “primarily promote cultural exchange between the Czech Republic and the German-speaking area”. The prize is endowed with 5,000 euros.

Each applicant for the prize submits six to ten texts. The name of the author will not be disclosed to the jury; instead, there is only a password on the text sheet, so that there can be no “celebrity bonus” at the Dresden Poetry Prize.

Voting members of the main jury are also representatives of the city council and the administration.
