Winners
The European Union Prize for Literature (EUPL) recognises emerging fiction writers from the European Union and beyond. Engaging the 41 countries participating in the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, the Prize celebrates 41 outstanding new literary talents across a cycle of three years.
We are excited to reveal 55 authors and books from 14 participating countries nominated for the 2021 European Union Prize for Literature   
This summer, we launched this exciting series on #EUPLreviews, where our EUPL laureates read and review other EUPL winning books. In the latest installment, Noémi Szécsi, laureate of the prize for Hungary in 2009, read 'Heaven', the EUPL winning book of our 2019 laureate from Finland, Piia Leino.
Each year, the EU Prize for Literature (EUPL) recognises emerging fiction writers in Europe. Come meet the 13 laureates of the EUPL 2020 as they take you on a literary journey across the old continent.
Before we had to move our EUPL ceremony online, two of our 2020 winning authors shared their expectations, thoughts, and ideas during the weeks leading up to the event in Brussels.  
In response to the coronavirus outbreak, the European Union Prize for Literature is joining the #CreativeEuropeAtHome movement with the rest of the Creative Europe community by developping a new range of cultural initiatives online. While live events might be on hold at the moment, we stay commited to helping Europe
Our 2019 Irish winner Jan Carson is sharing her impressions and thoughts while being confined to her home in Belfast during the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak. The Lockdown diary series will be updated on a weekly basis, so stay tuned to find out what's going on with Jan!
