Raiziss/de Palchi Translation Awards

The Raiziss/de Palchi Translation Awards recognize outstanding translations into English of modern Italian poetry through a $10,000 book prize and a $25,000 fellowship, given in alternating years.

The Raiziss/de Palchi Translation Awards Fund was established in 1995 through a bequest to The New York Community Trust by Sonia Raiziss Giop, a poet, translator, and long-time editor of Chelsea. The Trust has selected the Academy to administer the award.

The $10,000 Raiziss/de Palchi Book Prize will be given in 2025 for the translation into English of a significant work of modern Italian poetry. Submissions will be accepted from September 15, 2024, and February 15, 2025.

The judges for the 2025 Raiziss/de Palchi Book Prize are Anna Kraczyna, Jennifer Scappettone, and Charif Shanahan.
