Promotion Abroad

Promotion Abroad

The DGLAB supports the promotion of Portuguese authors and of authors from the Portuguese speaking countries (Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, São Tomé, Guinea-Bissau and Timor), exception made to Brazil which has its own funding.

It aims to make the work of Portuguese writers and illustrators better known outside Portugal on an enduring base. Classic and contemporary, living and dead authors, the project entails all the literary range of creation and also picture books and comics.  

The DGLAB is present at the major world book fairs. At the Frankfurt Book Fair and at the Bologna Book Fair on an annual base.

A protocol has been recently signed between the Camões Institute and the DGLAB in order to merge the translation and publication grants promoted by these two institutions, an initiative of both the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture. Therefore the two following programs are suspended for the moment. If you have any queries, please contact:
