SprachflaggeOnly non-German publishers are eligible to apply.

The committee meets four times a year as follows:

  • End of January: fiction; literature for children and young adults
    application deadline: 15 December

  • End of April: all categories
    application deadline: 15 December for academic works*,
    15 March for the other categories

  • End of July: fiction; literature for children and young adults
    application deadline: 15 June

  • End of October: all categories
    application deadline: 15 June for academic works*,
    15 September for the other categories

* For academic works an expert evaluation must be obtained from the “Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft” (German research organisation). This may delay the consideration of your application.
