Literature Prize: 'nah und fern' - European Capital of Culture Salzkammergut 2024

Entry deadline: 31 October 2023

The Literature Prize 'nah und fern' will take place from 22 - 24 June 2024 at the Siriuskogl in Bad Ischl on the occasion of the European Capital of Culture Salzkammergut 2024

They are looking for committed, creative and linguistically concise texts of German-language literature.

The submitted works (prose or lyrical prose) centered around theme of "nah und fern" should reflect various people's personal points of view on Europe in literary form. The focus is on identity, coming to terms with the past and the effects of globalisation in the digital age. Spaces of youth, setting out into new environments and fleeing from different perspectives can also be explored.

In addition, submissions can explore Austrian Salzkammergut. In the spirit of European diversity, however, this is not a requirement.
