The 2017 Awards Ceremony will take place on Friday 28 April 2017 at 6.30 p.m. and will be held in a new venue for the competition, the Munsterhof, at 9 rue des Juifs, Strasbourg. Here is a map with the venue indicated:
Every competition cycle culminates in the Awards Ceremony, where the 20 shortlisted writers are all invited and where they excitedly await the announcement of the winners and runners-up in each of the four categories. Additionally, the winning writer in each category is asked to read his or her story to the audience. It’s a great opportunity to share in the excitement of the announcement of the winners, to hear the winning stories read by their creators, to mingle with the finalists, judges, and organizers, and, of course, to purchase a copy of the annual book containing the current year’s shortlisted stories. All of this accompanied by light refreshments.
