French literary award
The Prix Théophraste-Renaudot or Prix Renaudot (French pronunciation: [pʁi teofʁast rənodo]) is a French literary award which was created in 1926 by 10 art critics awaiting the results of deliberation of the jury of the Prix Goncourt.
The Prix Renaudot, while not officially related to the Prix Goncourt, is a kind of complement to it, announcing its laureate at the same time and place as the Prix Goncourt, namely on the first Tuesday of November at the Drouant restaurant in Paris. The Renaudot jurors always pick an alternative laureate in case their first choice is awarded the Prix Goncourt.
The prize is named after Théophraste Renaudot, who created the first French newspaper in 1631.
