At the heart of the Dublin Literary Award is a vast network of libraries; not just the network of Dublin City Libraries who have happily been serving communities since 1884 but libraries in cities,

show more big and small around the world.

Dublin Literary Award honours excellence in world literature since 1996. Presented annually, the Award is one of the most significant literature prizes in the world, worth €100,000 for a single work of fiction in original English or translated into English. If the winning book is in English translation, the author receives €75,000 and the translator, €25,000.

Each year, a longlist is created of nominated books from invited public libraries in cities around the world. Our esteemed panel of judges then face the monumental task of narrowing these titles down to a shortlist of no more than ten titles. From this shortlist of exceptional work, one winner is selected and announced in a ceremony during the International Literature Festival Dublin.

Since 2015, the Award has been sponsored solely by Dublin City Council, administered by Dublin City Libraries and kindly supported by Dublin UNESCO City of Literature. show less
