V.O. Stomps Prize
Since 1978, the City of Mainz has awarded a prize named after V.O. Stomps to honor his memory as a publisher, writer and promoter of literature. Every two years, this prize honors quality and personal commitment by a small publisher. The prize comprises a Grand Prize (3,500 Euros) and an Award (1,500 Euros) and is for achievements in the fields of publishing firms and magazines. It was last awarded as part of the opening of the 24th Mainzer Minipressen-Messe in 2017.
