The competition is for the students of European and British universities only. The deadline for receiving the translations for the 2012-2013 entry is 30th April 2013 and the result of the competition will be announced by 30th July 2013. Prizes for the best translations are £200 for the first, £100 for the second, and £50 for the third. The awarded translations will be considered for online publication through the University of Cambridge website or print publication.
Each entry must consist of the source text, a maximum of 15 double-spaced pages of translation, an entry form and the entry fee. The entry fee is £7 per each translation, paid by a cheque drawn on a British bank and payable to University of Cambridge.
