Takis Kampylis: nominee for the European Union Literary Prize

Posted on Posted in News - Releases

The 2022 edition is a special one for EUPL, introducing a change in the organisation of the Prize: instead of awarding one laureate in each of the participating countries, a seven-member European jury will for the first-time award one overall winner for this edition, together with recognising five special mentions.

The EUPL 2022 winner will be announced on 21 April, during the opening ceremony at the Paris Book Fair. All nominated authors will be continuously promoted on a European stage, aiming to reach a wider and international audience, as well as connect with readers beyond their national and linguistic borders.
