Mar 17, 2018 Culture Comments Off on Foundation announces top winner of Taiwan history novel awards
Taipei, The New Taiwan Peace Foundation announced Saturday its first top prize recipient of the Taiwan History Novel Awards, an annual event which has been held since 2015.
Ko Tsung-ming (???), who won the prestigious award for his novel "Tan Ting-pho's password"(?????) in a ceremony held in Taipei, said Taiwan is not short of novelists, but lacks significantly in books about Taiwanese history.
Held for the third consecutive year, the finalists this year consisted of works by Chan Ming-ju (???), Ming Yu-ping (???) and Chang Ing-ming (???), who consequently took the prize for excellence with his novel titled "Ah Hsiang" (??).
According to the foundation, no top prize winner for the Taiwan History Novel Awards had been announced in the two previously events due to the lack of quality entries.
This year's jury members included renowned Taiwanese Director Wu Nien-jen (???) and poet Lee Min-yung (???).
The Taiwan History Novel Awards was created with an aim to call for prospective writers to turn in novels of more than 100,000 words based on historical events or figures in Taiwan. The top award also came with a prize of NT$1.2 million (US$41,379).
The award ceremony on Saturday also saw the presence of Culture Minister Cheng Li-chiun (???), who praised the event for highlighting Taiwan's history.
"Only when we know ourselves will the world know us," she said.
