Edasseri Memorial Award
The award was set up in 1982. The award jury selects
a literary work for the award. Each year a separate branch of literature, like poetry, novel etc., is considered for selection of work. A short-list is prepared after a preliminary scrutiny of the manuscripts
and/or printed books received for consideration, and a three-member jury decides the work for award out of this
short-listed selection. Initially the amount of Award was Rs.2,500 which was enhanced to Rs.3,000 and
then to Rs.5,000 and from 2010 onwards to Rs. 10,000.00..
