NDO – The Vietnam Writers’ Association launched an award on May 6 to honour young authors who penned outstanding literary works of the year.

The annual Young Authors Award aims to encourage the creativity and participation of young literary talents in developing Vietnamese literature.

It is open for all Vietnamese citizens both at home and abroad, who are below the age of 35, no matter they are members of the Vietnam Writers’ Association or not.

Entrants can participate in four categories of poetry, prose, theory and critics, and translation. Their publications must have been released in Vietnam between October 1 of the previous year and September 30 of the year in which the award is launched.

The entries will be assessed by a jury council comprising established writers, poets, researchers and translators.

The award ceremony will be held annually in November to honour the winners of that year.
