Kassel Literary Prize

The Kassel Literary Prize for Grotesque Humor (Kasseler Literaturpreis für grotesken Humor), established 1985, is an annual prize awarded by the city of Kassel and the Stiftung Brückner-Kühner foundation in recognition of "grotesque and comic work" at a high artistic level. Prior to 1996, it was also given to literary professors whose work is connected to this theme.[1] The prize includes an award of 10,000 euros.[2][3][4]

The foundation has, since 2004, also awarded authors under the age of 35 the Förderpreis Komische Literatur. This prize includes an award of 3,000 euros.

Prior to 2006, the awards were given in November, this was moved to the following February the next year, resulting in the "2006/2007" prizes.[1]
