La Casa Encendida and Fulgencio Pimentel are pleased to present the 3ed edition of book award titled Puchi Award 2019 seeking for the most innovative, groundbreaking, vibrant book proposals in any genre, focusing entirely on their boldness and their links with present-day art languages.
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 main aim of this award is to give visibility to great quality and innovating works that stand out because of their main idea, humour, humanity or artistic level in general.
Contestants may submit works-in-progress or finished works that have never been published, at least not with an ISBN and/or for commercial distribution. 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 or excerpt in the case of works-in-progress
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.
Materials may be uploaded to the website in the following formats:
• PDF up to 15 MB
• Images: JPG up to 10 MB; images must measure 900 x 540 (w x h), with one side equal to and the other side equal to or less than the stipulated measurements for width and height, according to the proportions of the original image (maximum of 15 images)
Previous works may also be shown, following the guidelines provided.
All authors are eligible to submit 1 or more original, unpublished works.
The award recipient will grant the publishers exclusive worldwide rights to the winning work, including all reproduction, distribution, public communication and transformation rights, for a period of 10 years.
Projects may be submitted between 11 October 2018 and 31 January 2019 at 10:00 pm (GTM+1).
Fulgencio Pimentel and La Casa Encendida will appoint a preliminary review panel, which will read the submissions and shortlist 10 works to be considered by a jury of renowned judges. The jury will consist of two prominent personalities from the world of publishing and the arts, one representative of La Casa Encendida and one representative of the Fulgencio Pimentel publishing house.
The winner will receive a cash prize and have his/her work published and distributed by Fulgencio Pimentel. Excepcionally, a Special Jury Award may be awarded. This excepcional award would imply the project publication.
