Submit your Dutch essay for the Gerrit Krol Award

The University of Groningen established the Gerrit Krol Award in 2019 in order to pay structural attention to Dutch as an academic language.

You are invited to submit an essay in Dutch of max. 2000 words with the theme ‘scenarios for the future’ before 1 June 2021 via One condition is that the essay must not have been published elsewhere. For all other criteria, see the regulations.

An expert jury will decide which submissions will be nominated for the award. The jury consists of Louis Stiller (writer), Zito Ysenbaert (winner Gerrit Krol Award 2019), Ellen Krol (Gerrit Krol’s daughter) and Ronald Ohlsen (writer and teacher at the Language Centre). The criteria are originality, stylistic ingenuity, and a talent for entertainment.

The award comprises a monetary prize of €2,000 and publication of the essay on literary weblog Tzum. The winner will be announced in June.
