Gyldendal's Endowment

Gyldendal's Endowment was a literature prize which was awarded in the period 1934–1995 by the Norwegian publisher Gyldendal Norsk Forlag.[1] The prize was awarded to significant authors, regardless of which publisher the author was associated with. The basic capital of the legacies came from the release of Bjørnson's collective works in 1932.

From 1996 the Gyldendals endowment was superseded by the Gyldendal Prize[1][2] for "particularly significant writing" and (since 1998) by the Sult-prisen (Hunger Award) for "eminent young authors".[3]
