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.«
