2008 Saif-Ghobash Banipal Prize Call for Entries (UK)

By Bud Parr

A call for entries for the 2008 Saif-Ghobash Banipal Prize from our friends at Banipal. Note that the deadline is 31 January! (And that this is for books published in the UK.)

The end of this month, 31 January, sees the deadline for entries to the 2008 Saif Ghobash-Banipal Prize for Arabic Literary Translation and the beginning of the judging period (February to June 2008), although we can be flexible if we know the entries are on their way.

We are looking for literature titles, that is, fiction including autobiographical novels, or poetry, translated from the original Arabic into English, and available for readers to buy in the UK either through the usual distribution channels or only online. If you have titles published during 2007, do let us know, and we will send you details immediately of where to send copies and how many etc.
