On the Award

The competition entitled ‘The European Poet of Freedom’ Literary Award is organized by the City of Gdańsk.

The award aims at honouring and promoting phenomena in poetry that deal with one of the most crucial subjects for contemporary readers - freedom - and, at the same time, are characterized by outstanding artistic values.

The award may be presented to a living poet from Europe - viewed according to its geographical criteria.

A team of seven translators of fiction is the only subject entitled to nominate books to the award. The members of the team change every two years and are invited to each edition of the award by the Mayor of the City of Gdańsk.
