The Gutekunst Prize of the Friends of Goethe New York was created in 2010 to identify outstanding young translators of German literature into English and assist them in establishing contact with the translation and publishing communities. The prize is open to college students and to all translators under the age of 35 who have not yet published, nor are under contract for, a book-length translation.
Herzlichen Glückwunsch, Betsy!
