Literary Awards from Saba
Georgia’s major literary awards ceremony called ‘Saba’ will be held on July 10, at TBC Bank.
The winner of the contest, as well as this past year’s best books will be named during the ceremony. Those who will be unable to attend the event can follow the event live on Rustavi 2 TV’s live broadcast.
Along with the various prizes, the contest’s organizer- TBC Bank, will award the winners with “cash bonuses.” The prize fund for this year’s contest has increased to 40,000 lari.
It’s already the ninth year that Saba is taking place; the aim of the contest is to evaluate the past year’s highlights in the literature world and to reflect on the best works.
Any type of literary work can be entered into the Saba competition, including works of Georgian translation from foreign languages, literary criticism, as well as documentary prose, but it should be written during the current year.
