More book awards: high standards in Iran

Yes, it’s that time of year again: they named the winners of the Sacred Defense Book of the Year awards in Iran…

Yet in ten major categories, including "Fiction," no books were deemed worthy of the honor.  The category "Children’s War Poetry" was left open as well.  Here is further information.  Here is a photo of the event, plus a list of the books that were honored.  Numerous second prizes were given even though no first prizes were awarded.


To be fair, there's not a "children's war poetry" category. There's a "children's poetry" category, wherein an award was given to a poetry collection that deals with, among other topics, war.

I wish more literary awards in the West would decide more often that no one deserves to win.

Please come to conan gold, we will give you a great surprise.
