About International Publishers Association's 2022 Prix Voltaire


The Geneva-based International Publishers Association (IPA) today launches its call for nominations for the 2022 IPA Prix Voltaire for exemplary courage in upholding the Freedom to Publish and enabling others to exercise their freedom of expression.

Freedom to publish is one of the founding principles of the IPA. Its protection and promotion is one of IPA's key objectives. In many countries, publishers who provide authors with the means to disseminate their written ideas run the same risks as the writers themselves. Their work requires immense courage and a values-based, altruistic commitment. The Freedom to Publish is far from guaranteed around the world, with daily attempts by governments, extremists or private interests to intimidate, attack, imprison and even kill publishers.


Kristenn Einarsson, Chair of the IPA’s Freedom to Publish Committee said: 

The shortlist for 2021 Prix Voltaire was a testament to the many brave publishers out there, risking their freedom to bring books to readers. We are looking to celebrate more of our colleagues who demonstrate the commitment to freedom to publish.

Previous prize recipients include Lebanese publishing house Dar Al Jadeed (2021), Vietnamese publishing house Liberal Publishing House (2020), Egyptian publisher Khaled Lotfy (2019), Swedish Hong Kong publisher Gui Minhai (2018),Turkish publisher Turhan Günay and publishing house Evrensel (2017), Saudi blogger Raif Badawi (2016) and Belarusian publisher Ihar Lohvinau (2014).

 

Who nominates whom for IPA Prix Voltaire 2022?


Any individual, group or organization can nominate a publisher, defined as an individual, collective or organization that provides others with the means to share their ideas in written form, including via digital platforms. Nominees will have recently published controversial works amid pressure, threats, intimidation or harassment. Alternatively, they may be publishers with a distinguished record over many years of upholding the freedom to publish and freedom of expression.

Nominations are to be submitted by email using the application form to the IPA at prix-voltaire@internationalpublishers.org
 

Key dates

The closing date for nominations is 27 March 2022, after which the nine publishing professionals that make up the IPA Freedom to Publish Committee will identify a longlist before agreeing on a shortlist and selecting the 2022 laureate. 


The IPA 2022 IPA Prix Voltaire ceremony will take place at the 33rd International Publishers Congress in Jakarta Indonesia from 10-12 November 2022.
