About the Nordic Council Literature Prize

The Nordic Council Literature Prize, awarded since 1962, goes to a work of fiction written in one of the Nordic languages. In this context, a work of fiction is considered to be poetry, prose, or drama that meets high literary and artistic standards. The purpose of the prize is to promote interest in the literature and language of the neighbouring countries, as well as in the Nordic cultural community.

I år tävlar tretton verk om att få Nordiska rådets litteraturpris.
