Award ceremony of the EU Prize for Literature 2013
On 26 November 2013, Androulla Vassiliou, Member of the EC in charge of Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, participated at the Award ceremony of the EU Prize for Literature 2013 in Brussels.
The aim of the European Prize for Literature is to put the spotlight on the creativity and diverse wealth of Europe’s contemporary literature in the field of fiction, to promote the circulation of literature within Europe and encourage greater interest in non-national literary works.
The works of the selected winners (one per country participating in the prize on a rotation basis) will reach a wider and international audience, and touch readers beyond national and linguistic borders. PHOTO SHOTLIST
