The following prizes are accepting submissions:

Please note that submissions are only accepted through our Submittable portal. The deadline for awards submissions is May 4 at 11:59pm PT. Find out more about ALTA’s awards on the website. Questions may be directed to ALTA’s Communications and Awards Manager Rachael Daum at rachaeldaum@literarytranslators.org.

If you’re looking for the company of other translation-lovers in these trying times, reach out to the ALTA community: we’re active on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. We have a Facebook group for the ALTA conferences, and ALTA members enjoy access to a member listserv called ALTAlk. Check out this list of ALTA-recommended reads (featuring the winners of these ALTA awards for the past five years). And of course, reach out to your local bookstores and publishers and see if they are holding virtual book clubs, and support them if you can.

We don’t know which challenges you are facing right now. But we send warm, healthy wishes to you, and hopes that if we continue to support each other, we will see this crisis through—together.
