Open Call — Puchi Award

The Puchi Award calls for sub­mis­sions. They are look­ing for books in any genre or form: fic­tion, non-fic­tion, poetry, nov­els, com­ics, illus­trated albums, essays, cook­books, geo­graphy books…

»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. 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.«
