Macedonia. His poetry has been translated into thirty languages and published in collections and anthologies in US, Europe and Asia. In 2012, he was selected to represent Macedonia at Poetry Parnassus, an international celebration of poetry as part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad in London. For his poetry book Relocated Stone (2007) he received the Hubert Burda European poetry award for authors born in East Europe (the jury was chaired by Peter Handke and Michael Kruger), and the most prestigious Macedonian poetry prize Miladinov Brothers at Struga Poetry Evenings. For the book Locked in the City (1999) he was given the Studentski Zbor award for the best debut, while for the collection of poems Somewhere Nowhere (1999) the Aco Karamanov prize. According to his poetry two short films were shot in Bulgaria and Croatia. The contemporary jazz composer and collaborator of Bjork and Lou Reed, Oliver Lake, has composed music based on Madzirov's poems which was performed at the Jazz-Poetry Concert in Pittsburgh in 2008.
