The Marsh Children’s Literature in Translation Award recognises the important role that translators play in opening up the world of literature to young readers. The award was founded to celebrate the best translation of a children’s book from a foreign language into English and published in the UK. It highlights the quality and diversity of translated fiction for young readers. Pre-registration is now open for the brand NEW English-Speaking Union’s My Marsh competition.
Classic titles such as Pippi Longstocking, The Little Prince, Tintin and Asterix set the standard for this welcome addition to children’s literature. These publications have the power to open up children’s eyes to the world around them.
The award is run by the English-Speaking Union on behalf of the Marsh Christian Trust. The shortlist for the Marsh Award will be announced on the 20th October 2016
Customers can order the longlist/shortlist titles from Browns Books for Students and enter the ‘My Marsh: Video review competition’ by uploading a video review of their favourite shortlisted title. Prizes for the competition include a subscription to The Week Junior (a magazine aimed at young children explaining news and events in ways that children will understand), a copy of all the books entered into the 2016 Marsh Award, coverage of the winners entry in The Week Junior, a discount voucher for SLA training and a £100 voucher from BrownsBfS to spend on books.
Competition entries to be submitted by 20th December 2016 and the winner will be announced on the 9th January 2017.
