Who is Europe’s best storyteller?

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary since the start of the European Prize for Literature, the European Union is organising a writing competition entitled “A European Story: EUPL Winners Write Europe.”

36 award-winning writers of the European Prize for Literature from 26 different European Union member states participated in this competition, and their work is available online so the public can vote for their favourite piece of writing.

10 voters will be given the opportunity to travel to Vienna for the award ceremony.

The jury who will select the winners are all familiar within the literary scene: Maria João Costa (Portugal), Nina George (Germany), Pons Juancho (Spain), Cathy Rentzenbrink (UK), Liana Sakelliou (Greece) and Marnix Verplancke (Belgium).

Over 9 years, 108 writers won the Prize, including 3 Maltese writers: Immanuel Mifsud in 2011, Pierre J. Mejlak in 2014, and Walid Nabhan in 2017.
