Adam Wlodek Award

In establishing the Adam Włodek Award, the Wisława Szymborska Foundation fulfils a provision of the last will and testament of its founding poet, who died in 2012. The Foundation also funds the Award and acts as the organiser of the award competition.

The Foundation grants the Award for a proposed project which envisions writing a book of literature or literary studies, or a translation. 

The Award is intended for young writers – authors, poets, translators, literary scholars and critics – who are under 35 and have published at least one book.
