This Krakow-based initiative contributes to promoting serious and important books, publications that are valued within the academic community, with winners receiving a statuette designed by Professor Chromy. The Jan Dlugosz Contest is a tremendous opportunity for works from the broadly understood humanistic fields written by Polish authors and published in our country. The current edition of the competition is for books published in 2017.
From among the works submitted by publishers (by the submission deadline of May 31, 2018), a jury will nominate ten volumes for the Jan Dlugosz Prize. The winners will be announced during the aword ceremony scheduled for October 25th.
The Jury chaired by Władysław Stróżewski has decided to award the Jan Długosz Prize 2017 to Prof. Przemysław Czapliński. He’s book entitled Poruszona Mapa published by Wydawnictwo Literackie was selected as the best by the jury.
