First awarded in 1996, the Vondel Prize for Translation from the Dutch or Flemish is now awarded biennially (next in 2013).
The Prize is sponsored by the Flemish Literature Fund and the Foundation for the Production and Translation of Dutch Literature.
Entries are called in by the judges so there is no entry form.
The Flemish Literature Fund, an autonomous governmental institution, encompasses all branches of the literary sector in Flanders (the northern Dutch speaking part of Belgium). The principal instruments of its foreign policy are information and documentation, translation and production grants, and refund of travel expenses.
The Foundation for the Promotion and Translation of Dutch Literature promotes interest in Dutch-language literature abroad. It maintains contacts with a large number of international publishers, and has a stand at major international book fairs, including the Frankfurt Book Fair, the London Book Fair and the Children’s Book Fair in Bologna. Foreign publishers wishing to publish translations of Dutch or Frisian literature may apply for a subsidy towards the translation costs.
