  • The Georg Dehio Book Prize (Georg Dehio-Buchpreis) is a biennial literary award for authors who, "in their literary, scholarly or public work, address the themes of the common culture and history of the German people and their Eastern neighbors at a high level and from a broad perspective." Described as "prestigious" by the Austrian state broadcasting system ORF, the Dehio Prize is funded by the German government through the Office of the Federal Commissioner for Culture and Media (Beauftragte der Bundesregierung for Kultur und Medien), the competition being administered by the German Cultural Forum for Eastern Europe (Deutsches Kulturforums östliches Europa), a state-endowed agency. It commemorates the Tallinn-born German art historian Georg Dehio (1850-1932), whose pioneering emphasis on multi-ethnic and transnational cultural interconnections and influences in Eastern Europe serves as a guiding principle for the work of the German Cultural Forum.The prize comes in two categories: a Grand Prize of €7,000 and a Prize of Honor of €3,000. The Grand Prize honors an author's lifetime achievement in literary and/or public endeavors. The Prize of Honor is awarded in recognition of an outstanding published work. If the prizewinning publication is a translation, the prize may be shared between the author and the translator. The Georg Dehio Book Prize began in 2004, and is awarded every other year, alternating with the Georg Dehio Cultural Prize, which was first offered in 2003.Winners of the Georg Dehio Book Prize are chosen by a selection committee whose members are appointed by the Board of Trustees of the German Cultural Forum on the nomination of its Executive Committee. It is composed of renowned personalities from the fields of literary studies, publishing and the media. Permanent members of the Selection Committee include a representative of the Office of the Federal Commissioner for Culture and Media (BKM) and a representative of the BKM-funded institutions concerned with the culture and history of the German-speaking peoples of Eastern Europe.
