Translation prizes and grants


Translation prizes and grants

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation promotes the dissemination of Italian publications and films abroad by granting subsidies for translation and dubbing/subtitling, which represent a strategic tool in the promotion of Italian language and culture abroad.

The Foreign Ministry grants two types of financial incentives:

Contributes to the translation of unpublished Italian work abroad and to the production, dubbing and subtitling of short and feature films and TV series;

Awards to Italian works translated abroad.

In 2020 the applications meant to obtain these awards and contributions with reference to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, can be submitted to the Italian Cultural Institute in Edinburgh and to the Italian Cultural Institute in London by the 30th of March 2020 following the instructions set out by Announcement 2020.
