The Vergílio Ferreira Literary Prize, instituted by the Municipality of Gouveia in 1997, aims to honor the writer Vergílio Ferreira, as well as to encourage literary production, thus contributing to the defense and enrichment of the Portuguese language.
The annual award distinguishes the categories of unpublished novel and literary essay and, as of 2002, the non-literary category of Local Studies of Heritage, History and Culture of the Municipality of Gouveia.
The winner of the Vergílio Ferreira 2022 Literary Award, which will distinguish an original in the literary essay category, will be announced on March 1, 2022.
The Vergílio Ferreira Literary Prize will be presented to the awarded author in a public ceremony, to be held at the opening of the Festa da Cidade de Gouveia, in August 2022.
