La Casa Encendida and Fulgencio Pimentel are pleased to present the 4th Puchi award 2020 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.
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.
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 of work imaginable.
The organizers are looking for one-of-a-kind book, or even a whole new kind of book – 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.
