Federal Bank, a pioneer in banking and social responsibility, proudly announces the call for nominations for the Federal Bank Literary Awards or popularly known as Federal Bank Sahitya Puraskaram 2023. This prestigious award is a manifestation of our commitment to nurturing the cultural and literary heritage of Kerala. The Bank invites nominations for literary works published between November 1, 2022, and October 31, 2023. In addition to publishers who can suggest up to 10 books, readers are encouraged to submit nominations for up to three exceptional books, exploring the diversity and depth of Malayalam literature.
The Federal Bank Literary Award 2023 carries a bronze statuette and a purse of Rs. One Lakh, symbolizing our appreciation for the profound impact of literature on society. In 2022, the esteemed Federal Bank Literary Award was bestowed upon the accomplished writer K Venu for his autobiography, ‘Oranweshananthinte Katha.’ The judging panel, including notable literary figures, recognized the profound essence of Venu’s work, making it a compelling choice for the award.
