“The Prize seeks to highlight the fantastic activity taking place to promote women in translation and so each year we publish the full list of eligible submissions. This year the Prize takes place within the framework of Coventry City of Culture and Coventry Cathedral is very generously making its space available to us so that we can celebrate the initiative in a more public forum. We hope to see many of you in Coventry in November,” said the announcement statement.
