Literature and book reading is a common part of the hotel experience, making our commitment to Augustpriset a natural part of supporting the written word and contributing to positive social development in the long run. Not least for children and young people. We support several initiatives explicitly aimed at younger people, including Lilla Augustpriset. A competition for young people between the ages of 16 and 20 which aims to increase young people's interest in book reading. As a proud partner and sponsor of Lilla Augustpriset, we want to contribute to creating future Augustpriset winners.
The initiative for the partnership was taken by Elite Hotels of Sweden's founder Bicky Chakraborty. A dedicated philanthropist who, thanks to his strong commitment to the Swedish cultural heritage, has made the company support Swedish culture through literature since 2016.
