Economy and business: The prize is NOK 50,000 and will be given on the occasion of the national meeting of Norges Mållag in Trondheim 19–21. April.

Noregs Mållag, Det Norske Samlaget and Det Norske Teatret are behind the prize, which has been awarded since 1982.

– The winner of this year’s prize confirms once again that he has the skills to use language to compose large and broad poems, to bring out the big in the small. He manages to bring out a person of flesh and blood who lived in a near, but increasingly distant past, in a humble honor to those who have been here before us, writes the jury in its justification.

The jury consists of Margit Walsø, Magne Julin Vik-Mo and Carl Morten Amundsen.
