It was founded by Lord Weidenfeld and is supported by New College, The Queen's College and St Anne's College, Oxford.

This year’s judges are Kasia Szymanska, Simon Park, Jessica Stacey, and Adriana X. Jacobs (Chair).

The shortlist will be announced in May 2018. The prize of £2000 will be awarded at Oxford Translation Day, at St Anne’s College on Saturday 9 June 2018. Oxford Translation Day will feature talks, seminars and workshops, and will give all shortlisted translators the opportunity to read from and discuss their work.
