Tchernichovsky Prize is an Israeli prize awarded to individuals for exemplary works of translation into Hebrew.


The Tchernichovsky Prize is awarded by the municipality of Tel Aviv-Yafo.[1] Although initially awarded annually, it is now awarded every two years.

The prize was founded, in the name of the poet Shaul Tchernichovsky, following a 1942 resolution of the municipality. Tchernichovsky himself participated in formulating the policies for the grant of the award and attended the first award ceremony for the prize in 1943.[1]
