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, novels, story books, studies, 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. From 2013 onwards the amount has been increased to Rs. 25,000.00.
