Edasseri Award (List of Winners 1982-2018)

Edasseri
Edasseri Govindan Nair
Edasseri Award (sometimes spelled as Idasseri Award) is a literary award given to outstanding work written in Malayalam. The award was established in the memory of Malayali poet and playwright Edasseri Govindan Nair by Edasseri Smaraka Samithi in 1982. Each year the award is given in a separate branch of literature such as poetry, novels, literary criticism, drama, short-story and so on. Earlier, there was only one award used to be conferred by the committee, but multiple awards are being given each year since 2015. It was not awarded in 2009, 2013 and 2014.

The award was first given in 1982 to Malayali poet and literary critic NK Desam for his work Ullekham. It was last awarded in 2018 to Aryambika, Prabha Varma, Lopa Mahavi and Kanimol.
