The Internationaler Literaturpreis has been awarded annually since 2009 by Haus der Kulturen der Welt and Stiftung Elementarteilchen. The highly remunerated award (with prize money of €20,000 for the author and €15,000 for the translator) honors an outstanding work of contemporary international literature that has been translated into German for the first time. The award thus acknowledges the work of both the author and the translator.
