Puchi Award 2019: Book Project Competition for Literary and Graphic Projects

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

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. Some submissions might be works that are difficult to insert in conventional publishing circuits because of their unclassifiable nature; however, favourable consideration will be given to each project’s viability and suitability with regard to available resources.

La Casa Encendida is a social and cultural center managed by Fundación Montemadrid, a dynamic space open to audiences of all ages and persuasions where visitors can find some of today’s most groundbreaking artistic expressions as well as educational, philosophical and debating activities that revolve around the centre’s four main spheres of action: Arts, Solidarity, Environment and Education. La Casa Encendida organises various activities in each of these areas, attempting to satisfy the interests and needs of an engaged public attentive to the changing trends of today.

Adapting to global changes and anticipating new social and cultural needs remains our greatest challenge. For this reason, at La Casa Encendida they strive to keep growing as:

A cultural centre, a social centre, a non-formal education centre, a forum for reflecting on and debating, a platform for supporting and publicizing, a creative laboratory, a stimulating environment, an accessible building, and A meeting place.
