Mongolian novelist G.Mend-Ooyo won the highest prize of the International Literature Festival, which took place in Craiova, Romania.
The event was organized by the International Academy Mihai Eminescu at the Craiova Art Museum from September 15 to 19
After receiving his prize, novelist G.Mend-Ooyo said, “I see this award granted to me at the center of Europe, Craiova, as a clear indication of how highly Mongolian literature, as well as our national poetry is valued in Europe, which cultivates ancient cultures. No matter how much time changes people’s satisfaction and enjoyment, a sincere novel will not be affected and preserve its value and continue to accumulate intellectual treasures.”
The second prize was bestowed to French poet and novelist Nicole Brossard and the special prize to Senegalese poet, Amodu Laminye Sall.
At the opening ceremony of the festival, President of the International Academy Mihai Eminescu Ion Deaconescu and Mayor of Craiova Lia Olguta Vasilescu presented the awards, which included a trophy and prize money.
“The fact that a Mongolian novelist is being awarded with the highest prize of literature of this festival from over 50 famous participating novelists, recognized throughout the world, shows that Mongolian novels are taking up their befitting place in the literature treasury of human kind,” stated the Ion Deaconescu, President of the International Academy Mihai Eminescu.
A special thing about the festival was that the one of the world’s greatest sculptors of the 21st century, Vincent Bianchi, sculpted the trophies and presented them himself, while famous artist Constantin Mihalache presented his own art works to the novelists.
