Olivera Nikolova wins this year's Prozart Award, one that the international literary festival "Pro-Za Balkan" awards for special contribution towards the literature in the Balkans. The 10th edition of this festival took place from September 18th to 21st, 2022.

"Olivera Nikolova has left a mark on Macedonian literature of the second half of the 20th and the first decades of the 21st century, therefore we rightfully consider her to be a literary bard, someone whose works will remain to be regarded as peaks of Macedonian classical literature. From her books for children to her last novel for adults, she offers readers in Macedonia and the Balkans the unique privilege to read something written now and here, but also something that will echo far ahead in future". (written in the explanation of the jury presided by Ermis Lafazanovski).
