Asymptote Journal is thrilled to announce the third edition of Close Approximations, international translation contest. Open to emerging translators, this contest invites translations in two genres: fiction and poetry. The winner and two runners-up of each category will walk away with 1,000 and 250 US dollars respectively.

In addition to winning prize money, there will be a feature of the winners in the April 2017 issue (and quite possibly partner newspaper, The Guardian, as well, via Translation Tuesday showcase).

For more details of eligibility and how to submit, follow this link before February 1,  2017.
