Sprotin Publishers was founded and began cautiously its publishing activities in the early 1990s.
However, after being restructured as a private company in 2000, Sprotin has grown intentionally and steadily into one of the major publishers in the Faroes.
We are proud of the awards our books have received. Three novels have beeen nominated for the Nordic Council Literature Prize and six novels have received the most prestigious Faroese literary prize. In 2010 our publishing house was given an honorary award for cultural achievements by the Department of Culture and Education.
