Puchi Award 2020

web site

Deadline: 23 January 2020

La Casa Encendida and Fulgencio Pimentel are pleased to present the fourth Puchi award.
The competition is open to books in any genre or form: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, novels, comics, picture books, essays, cookbooks, geography books, combinations of the above or any other type imaginable. We’re looking for one-of-a-kind book, or even a whole new kind of book.

The Puchi award will be governed by the following rules:

This competition is open to literary and graphic projects of any kind that stand out by virtue of their premise, literary and graphic quality, originality, unconventionality or mould-shattering conception. A book can contain everything and anything, and that is precisely what this contest wants: fiction and non-fiction, essays, informative literature, poetry, illustration, comics, cookbooks, geography books, combinations of the above or any other type of work.

The aim of this award is to shine a spotlight on works of the highest quality and originality.

Eligibility

All authors of legal age from Spain or any other country are eligible to submit one or more original, unpublished works.

Dates

Projects may be submitted between 20th November 2019 and 23rd January 2020 at 12:00 noon (GTM+1), both dates included. Submissions sent before or after this period will not be accepted.

Prizes

The winner will receive a cash prize of €8,000 (VAT and all other taxes included, as an advance on the rights of the published work) and have his/her work published and distributed by Fulgencio Pimentel.

Exceptionally, a Special Jury Award may be awarded. This excepcional award would imply the project publication.

Requirements
Contestants may submit only finished works that have never been published, at least not with an ISBN and/or for commercial distribution.

La Casa Encendida and Fulgencio Pimentel will have the final say regarding design and production aspects of the book.

Projects must be accompanied by either the pseudonym or real name of the author (or authors, in the case of collaborative works).

Each author or co-author of the project must submit:

  • A completed entry form
  • A curriculum vitae (one for each author)
  • National ID, foreign resident ID or passport
  • Brief summary of the work and statement of motivation (max. 2,000 characters with spaces)
  • List of production requirements, if any (max. 1,000 characters with spaces)
  • Finished work in original language (PDF or Word document).
  • Provisional translation into English of at least two pages of the work.
  • Works may be written in any language, although a provisional translation into English of at least two pages must also be submitted. The entry form, curriculum vitae, summary and statement of motivation, and production requirements must all be submitted in English.
