Abstract: The University of Arkansas Arabic Translation Award is given for a notable English translation of a booklength literary work originally written in the Arabic language, administered by the King Fahd Center for Middle East Studies. The prize-winning book is published by the Syracuse University Press as part of their Middle East Literature in Translation series. The King Fahd Center also awards an annual prize up to $10,000, for the best book-length translation of Arabic literature from any of the following genres: poetry, novel, short story collection, drama, or literary non-fiction such as autobiography or memoir. Submitted translations must be previously unpublished in book form. All translation rights must be cleared for publication. The original author (if still holding rights to the work) will receive, in lieu of royalties, $5,000 and the translator (or translators) will receive a total of $5,000. Independent judges select the award winning translation.
