|ASTR Translation Prize|
ASTR recognizes that translators and translations make significant contributions to the field of theater and performance on a worldwide scale.

In its deliberations, the selection committee will take into consideration the different categories of submissions (plays, scholarly books, essays, etc.) and aim to distribute the award equitably among them over a five year award cycle.
